Bid
1 Australia #1/126, O3/O10. Two pages of early used Australia, arranged in numerical order by Scott. What is counted is the "Roos" and King George V "Heads", with individual catalogue values up to $35.00, including an attractive group of 8 different "OS" overprints. A few nice cancels are noted. Expect only the occasional minor fault. The four duplicates of the 9d "Roo" and the lower five rows on the second page (including 1920s-1930's commemoratives / definitives) for one reason or another, are not counted in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$465.15 = $627.95 $12.00
2 Australia #1/2884. A ‘Roo and KGV "Heads" rich mounted collection with regular issues up to about 2008. Includes a touch of mint (and a bit heavily hinged) issues, with attractive copies of #5, 45 and 49. The "Roos" run up to 5/- values (#44 with a surprisingly light parcel cancel). There is a good run of "Heads" including dies, perfins, cancels (and include an envelope of stamps that didn’t quite make it to the pages). The assignment of some watermarks could use double-checking, but we have left them as the original owner had them listed. The 1930’s onwards is a mix of mint and used, and the occasional nice multiple, with some "back of the book" and a few covers to add to the appeal. After about 1980 the collection gets sparser but did see denominations up to $20.00 and some modern "Specimen" overprints. Approximately 1300 stamps, with light duplication. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
3 Australia #66/154, C4. Eye-catching group of 28 pre-War mint, Never Hinged blocks, arranged in numerical order by Scott. Includes some GeoV "Heads" (5 of the blocks are duplicates), plus the basic Kingford-Smith issue, large Kookaburra and Lyrebirds, the Melbourne issue (both perforations on the 3d), Macarthur, Anzac, GeoV on horse "Anzac" and the perf 11 airmail issue. Generally, very fresh appearance, there are a few with light even toning or couple of tropical spots (almost universally affect the back of the stamps). The C4 has a couple of short perfs, because of such a large perforation on a large stamp (which is why they changed the perf in a subsequent printing). Many of the blocks have light pencil marks with an old catalogue number, or the perforation, which should easily erase. Counted as Never Hinged, but with no premium for imprint or plate blocks in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$2861.00 = $3,862.25 $150.00
4 Australia - Do-it-yourself collection kit. Includes a near new Stanley Gibbons album with pages to 1985, with lots of mounts added, but about the only stamps mounted are mint 1980’s issues. Inside the cover of the album are a couple of collection fragments with used "Roos", GeoV "Heads" and a number of 2d-1/- commemorative issues up to the late 1930’s, with good potential and lots of great cancels. The lot also comes with a small shoebox filled with envelopes, glassines, loose stamps and presentation packs, which would be enough to make the album feel very full and have you looking for a place to mount the extensive more recent issues. In the box is a mix of mint and used by the hundreds, including "back of the book" (airmail, Australian Antarctic Territory). If you like your auction lots full of treasure packets, this lot is for you. Estimate = $160.00 $11.00
5 Australia - Modern grouping of 86 different used, being ONLY high values from the 2014-2022 period (no domestic letter rate issues). These are very hard to find now with so few people using stamped postal mail. 2024 Scott US$268.00 = $361.80 $13.00
6 Australia and States - An enticing "end of consignment" accumulation of mint and used Australia. A black stockcard holds some of the most intriguing items including a GeoVI coil paste-up pair, officials, South Australia issues and higher values from New South Wales and Tasmania. There is a 5/- "Cattle" and a 10/- explorer plus an old group of postage dues that look diverse at first glance. A page of Aussie states including some nice cancels. There are old album fragments, including a nice page of Victoria postal fiscals (with fiscal cancels) and the lot ends with about 20 circa 1980s presentation packs. Estimate = $180.00 $13.00
7 Australian States - Fascinating study lot of 364 stamps, covering all six stamp-issuing states, mounted on Scott pages, with lots of pencil notes to help guide the buyer. Includes New South Wales (34), Queensland (70), South Australia (53), Tasmania (32), Victoria (105), Western Australia (70). Plenty of interesting material here including different printings, perforations, watermarks (including a couple of "locally produced" inverts, not listed by Scott or Gibbons), and a bit of "spice" added with the occasional perfin or revenue stamp. Definitely some cancel potential too for the postmark hound. Estimate = $150.00 $15.00
8 Australian States - New South Wales #24/128, J1-J2, O13/O25. Selection of issues from 1854 to 1906, consisting of seventy-seven stamps, in mainly used condition, on two pages. The best stamp in this group is #40a, the aniline lilac 6p. Note the Watermarks on the 5p and 8p "diadems" from the top of the sheet showing "NEW SOUTH WALES POSTAGE". This was put there for the benefit of the printer so he would be sure to use the correct paper when printing the stamps. For some strange reason this is only, briefly, mentioned in Gibbons and no premiums are shown even 'though such stamps are obviously much scarcer than those with regular watermarks and are a legitimate variety collectible. For the same strange reason the Australian Catalogues have never attempted to list the Official perforated initials stamps for any of the States. See a few examples (un-priced) at the end of this offering. Owner's 2023 Scott US$475.15 = $641.45 $75.00
9 Austria #28/800 plus Back of the Book. Pre-1968 mounted collection of 1050 mint and used stamps, a bit light in the 19th century, but with better coverage over the next 65 years, with strength in "back of the book". Great cancellations throughout, the material becomes increasingly mint and by the early 1960’s the stamps are mostly Never Hinged. Lots of $3-$10 sets, with the occasional better item. A black stockpage of "bonus" (items the collector just hadn’t got around to mounting) includes B264-B267 mint Hinged catalogues $35.00 and the "Birds" airmail set C54/C60 (missing only the 1s value, which catalogues $243.40). Expect some mixed condition, but almost no duplication. All in a black Borek springback binder. Estimate = $160.00 $24.00
10 Bahrain #1/295. Small aqua 32-page Lighthouse stockbook from the distant past containing 50 years of Bahrain, starting with mint and used overprints on Indian stamps and later British issues (noted blocks of 4 and 10 of the 1948 Olympics). After they started issuing their own stamps in 1960, there is some spotty mint and used coverage (there are singles cataloguing up to $7.50 each like a block of #PT2). But the pleasant surprise is a few of the early souvenir sheets including Horses #224, Concord #247a, Dogs #256 and five copies of wildlife #295. The stamps are in generally excellent condition, while the stockbook has seen better days. 2023 Scott US$825.30 = $1,114.16 $24.00
11 Belgium and Belgian Congo - Calling Leopold I detectives. This 2000 stamp mounted collection starts with a couple dozen imperforate Leopolds followed by other 19th century material with collector-identified printing and perforation differences. Noted the 1925 "Two Kings" set complete mint, a couple of copies of #213 used and many better cancels on the earlier material. The coverage of the mostly used issues is pretty good up until 1983. The "back of the book" is well represented including a nice used set of B31-B33, a mint set of B78-83, souvenir sheets and many Parcel Post stamps.. On top of all this is a 300 stamp Belgian Congo lot, mostly used, with a couple nice postal cards and finishing with about 50 Belgian East Africa (Rwanda) stamps. Estimate = $240.00 $16.00
12 Bermuda #53a. Sound and Fine/Very Fine partial CDS used example of the 1922 issue 10sh red and green on pale bluish green high value GeoV key plate, watermark 3 (multiple Crown and CA). 2023 Scott Classic US$490.00 = $661.50 $55.00

14 British Central Africa #52, 53. Very Fine CDS used examples of the 1897 issue 3 shillings grey green & black and 4 shillings carmine rose & black "Coat of Arms" high values. A very pretty early British Africa duo! 2024 Scott US$475.00 = $641.25 $42.00

16 British Central Africa #58b x4. Two used imperforate singles and a used pair of the 1898 issue "Internal Postage" provisionals, all Type I and without control number on reverse. A couple of thins noted, not affecting the appearance of any of the stamps.

17 British Central Africa #58b, 59d. Very Fine used examples of the 1898 issue "Internal Postage" provisionals, both Type I and both without control number on reverse, in both the imperforate and perf 12 x 12 versions. 2024 Scott US$335.00 = $452.25 $10.00

Very Fine mint Never Hinged/Hinged selection of 24 different 1948 issue GeoVI Silver Wedding sets of two, all laid out on two Hagner stocksheets.

23 British Commonwealth - Pacific Islands that were under Australian or New Zealand’s administration. A sample from several countries, almost all issued in the 20th century. For the "classic" collectors, there is a trio of Lakatoi designs from Papua (catalogues $46.00), and a strip of three 9d "Roos" overprinted "North West Pacific Islands" (#19, never hinged, cat. $52.50). More recent ventures include issues from Samoa, Cook Islands, Norfolk Islands, Cocos (Keeling), Christmas Island, Papua New Guinea, with a number of sheetlets from Nauru, Aitutaki, Niue, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu.

25 Bulgaria #2/1492 plus Back of the Book. A mix of old album pages makes for an interesting study. There is a good range of used 19th century issues which will need some help to untangle. There is good coverage of used sets up to about 1920 and then it is a bit sparse regaining some completeness from 1958-1966, with lots of $3-$8 sets full of topical potential. Finishes with a nice run of early postage dues. About 450 different stamps. Estimate = $130.00 $12.00
26 Canada #14/696 plus BOB. Red "Simplex" Stanley Gibbons album with used (and later mint) mounted collection covering 1859-1976. Strong Queen Victoria, with 4 "Cents" issues, a 5c and 15c Large Queen, a dozen Small Queens/Widow Weeds and 10x Jubilees up to the 50c (missing only the 6c). The late Victorian up to the Admirals are a bit "hit or miss", but both Admiral revalues are present (mint). There is some decent GeoV including a used Bluenose, Parliament, Cavell, etc. The "back of the book" has a decent showing with some Special Delivery, Airmails and Postage Dues. From the 1940’s onwards, the issues become increasingly mint and increasingly Never Hinged. Collection is mounted by chronological date of issue, so finding if sets are complete can be a bit of a challenge. Overall condition is excellent, with very few faulty stamps noted. 2023 Scott US$2903.50 = $3,919.73 $32.00
27 Canada #29P. Very Fine horizontal Plate Proof pair of the 15c Large Queen in a rich Deep Grey Violet shade (plum?), printed on thick white card (Minuse and Pratt #29TC4), showing part of the next stamp at right. Exceptionally sharp impression. Estimate = $2,000.00 $120.00

Selection of used 1872 issue brown and yellow brown shades of the 6c Small Queen, including one stamp showing a strong example of the Unitrade listed MAJOR RE-ENTRY (#39ii, position 67). The heavy line through CANADA POSTAGE and line below the design are clearly visible, unobscured by the light cancel. Another stamp of interest in the lot has an extra row of vertical perforations. The group is generally sound and Fine but expect a few faults in the mix, a good group for the Small Queen student. 16 stamps in total. Estimate = $200.00 $32.00
30 Canada #50/57. All mint duplicated selection of ½c, 1c, 2c, 5c, 6c, 8c and 10c Jubilees. While their appearance is generally decent, most have a little "problem", either no gum, light creases/bends, small thins etc. A good lot for the collector who doesn't need top quality to fill the space in their album. 2024 Scott US$1,345.00 = $1,815.75 $24.00

34 Canada #84. Very Fine+ perfectly centered OG Hinged example of the 1900 issue 20c olive green Queen Victoria Numeral high value. As nice a mint 20c Numeral as you will find without paying a 200% premium for Never Hinged gum. 2024 Unitrade is $1,000.00 for Very Fine mint Hinged. 2024 Scott US$650.00 = $877.50 $120.00

51 Canada #141/302 plus some Back of the Book. Quasi-specialized, post-Admiral GeoV and full GeoVI collection on Minkus pages. Sometimes there is just a basic set, often mixed mint and used, (e.g. Confederation, Scroll, Pictorial, War). Then you turn the page and there are printing anomalies or interesting pieces, sometimes Unitrade listed, sometimes not. Expect to see coils, pairs, duplicates, plate numbers and other interesting "odds and ends" throughout. Strong in the Medallion issue, with not one, but two "broken E" varieties (one mint, one used). Noted a jump strip on a used coil strip of 6 #230 and a 3c Mufti coil starter piece (used!), a used Chateau dollar plate pair and War issue including coils and booklet panes. The "back of the book" is primarily airmail, special delivery and official overprints, with a mix of mint and used (sometimes both). Not your usual offering and you will definitely want to be double checking against your Unitrade as you go through. Many of the used with Western Canada cancels. No Arch issue, with about 400 stamps in total. Catalogued as basic stamps, but there are plenty of "plus value" items. Total 2023 Scott US $2167.85 = $2,926.60 $22.00

53 Canada #149-157. Fresh and Fine/Very Fine mint Never Hinged partial 1928-1929 issue GeoV "Scroll" set, from the 1c value up to and including the 20c value. A great start to a Never Hinged set (just missing the 50c Bluenose and $1.00 Parliament). 2023 Scott Classic US$405.00 = $546.75 $22.00
54 Canada #159. Fresh and Fine/Very fine centered mint Never Hinged example of the 1929 issue $1.00 olive green Parliament high value from the GeoV Scroll set. The $1.00 Parliament is considered by many to be the key GeoV era high value. 2024 Scott US$575.00 = $776.25 $80.00
55 Canada #162-175. Fresh, sound and Fine/Very Fine mint Never Hinged examples of the 1c to 20c values from the 1930-1931 KGV "Arch/Leaf" issue. A more than decent a start to a Never Hinged "Arch/Leaf" set. 2023 Scott Classic US$320.50 = $432.70 $10.00
56 Canada #178i-183i. All Very Fine mint Never Hinged complete run of all six 1930-1931 issue GeoV "Arch/Leaf" coils, all in Unitrade listed "line pairs". 2024 Unitrade = $740.00 $85.00
57 Canada #192i. Fresh and Fine/Very Fine mint sheet margin "PLATE NO. 2" positional block of 8 of the 1932 issue 3c deep red Imperial Economic Conference. The stamp in the upper left-hand position in the block showing the Unitrade listed "Broken E" constant plate flaw (#192i) is Very Fine but the four stamps to the right of this block are only Fine. Conservatively valued as a Never Hinged single in a Very Fine block of four normal stamps. 2024 Unitrade = $240.00 $13.00
58 Canada #211-216, 217-222. All Fine to Very Fine mint Never Hinged complete 1935 GeoV Silver Jubilee commemorative set of six and the 1c-8c GeoV 1935 issue definitives. All in blocks of four. The 1c value from the Jubilee set is the earliest depiction of the future Queen Elizabeth II on a Canadian stamp. 2024 Scott US$205.60 = $277.56 $24.00
59 Canada #217-227, 231-236, 241-245, 241a. Select quality and Very Fine mint NH complete sets of the last GeoV pictorial issue (1935 "Champlain" set) and first GeoVI pictorial issue (1938 "Chateau Ramezay" set) plus the 1937 issue GeoVI definitives. Unitrade is $619.00 for the Very Fine mint Never Hinged sets. 2024 Scott US$421.25 = $568.70 $26.00
60 Canada #230 VARIETIES. Sound and fresh mint Hinged/Never Hinged strips of four of the 3c carmine 1935 issue GeoV coil, each strip with an evident (but Unitrade unlisted) variety. One strip has a "missing perf pin" in between the middle stamps at the top. The other strip has a horizontal scratch running through the left part of the design of stamp #3 in the strip and a badly damaged "N" in "CENTS" on stamp #2 in the strip. Both plate flaws are probably related to damage that occurred at the same time. This second variety is at least as rare as the Unitrade listed "damaged 2" (#229ii) on the 2c coil. Estimate = $200.00 $15.00
61 Canada #238-240, 263-267, 278-281, 295-296, 297-300, 305-306. Fresh mint Never Hinged complete and almost all Very Fine run of all the 1937 to 1951 period GeoVI coils, all in pairs. Nice to get them all at once in pairs, especially if you have a Canada "Unity" album. 2024 Scott US$282.50 = $381.40 $14.00
62 Canada #337p-341p. Post Office fresh complete mint Never Hinged run of the Winnipeg Tagged QEII Wilding definitive plate and corner blocks, with matched sets of the plate #1 and plate #2 blocks of the 3c value instead of blank corners. A very high quality group. 2024 Unitrade = $365.00 $10.00
63 Canada #458bp UNLISTED VARIETY. Two Very Fine mint Never Hinged examples of the Winnipeg Tagged 5c blue "Fishing Village" Centennial miniature pane of 20, DEX gum, printed on TWO DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT PAPERS. They appear to be DF and NF papers, like the untagged panes but are unlisted in Unitrade as having different papers when Tagged. It's not often that we turn up potentially new Centennial listings! Estimate = $250.00 $22.00
64 Canada #462iii. Very Fine mint Never Hinged matched set of corner blocks of the December 1971 issue 10c olive green "Jack Pine" high value Centennial on the Unitrade listed Hibrite paper, spotty white gum. 2024 Unitrade = $260.00 $22.00
65 Canada #463ii. Very Fine mint Never Hinged matched set corner blocks of the March 1971 issue 15c dull purple "Bylot Island" high value Centennial on the Unitrade listed Hibrite paper, Dex gum. 2024 Unitrade = $400.00 $22.00
66 Canada #464, 465, 465A, 465B. The original February 8th 1967 printings (DF paper, DEX gum) of the four Centennial high values (20c, 25c, 50c & $1.00), all in Very Fine mint Never Hinged matched sets of plate blocks. The 20c and 25c values come in plates #1 and #2, the 50c and $1.00 are plate #1 only. A great start to a collection of plate blocks this very popular series. 2024 Unitrade = $380.00 $32.00
67 Canada #4/102, F1/F2, J1/J40. Early Canada mounted collection on blank Minkus pages, starting with a nice 3-margin example of #4 (the 3d Beaver), followed by four denominations of the "Cents" issues and basic sets of both "Large Queens" and "Small Queens". Coverage of the regular issues goes to 1908, before the collection shifts gears to Postage Due issues. Some obvious faults in the earlier materiel, but some nice stamps throughout. Estimate = $200.00 $55.00
68 Canada #1170/1179. Compact mint NH collector assembled selection of 1988-1990 Mammal Definitives, including many better. Noted #1171 / 1171i (both Harrision and Slater plate blocks), #1172Ag (46c Wolverine with better perforation), #1173 / 1173i (both Rolland and Harrison plate blocks), #1174 / 1174a (both Harrison and Slater 13.1 perf plate blocks), #1176a (perf 13.1 plate block), #1178 / 1178i (Harrison and Slater plate blocks), #1179b (perf 13.1). Total 2024 Unitrade = $377.25 $24.00
69 Canada #1250ii. Upper right position Very Fine mint Never Hinged inscription block of four of the 1989 issue 38c Regiments commemorative. Most inscription blocks were withdrawn due to problematic and incredibly poor printing quality. Only one inscription block was allowed per customer and only through mail order from the National Philatelic Centre. 2024 Unitrade = $250.00 $140.00
70 Canada #1359a DRAMATIC MIS-CUT. Used booklet pane of 10 (missing end tabs) of the 1993 issue 43c "Flag over Field" definitive, showing a dramatically angled mis-cut that shows imperf between portions of the stamps from the bottom row of this pane and top row of the next pane down. Vertical crease between first and third rows, otherwise sound and VF. Extremely rare as an intact booklet and even scarcer (statistically) as a postally used piece. Estimate = $200.00 $80.00
71 Canada #1969 Missing Gold in Margin Error. Very Fine mint Never Hinged full sheet of 25 the 2003 "Year of the Ram" Lunar New Year 48c commemorative with "MISSING GOLD" in the sheet margin at left. Unitrade notes that the missing gold error was a "progressive" error, with some sheets missing only the gold on the selvedge (as is this sheet), a few missing only in the left column and some missing gold from the left two columns. This "progression" is due to the way that the gold foil, which came in a roll, was applied. If the gold foil roll ran out during the printing run, the lack of gold would progress from left to right on the sheet, depending on where the gold foil ran out. Theoretically, this missing gold in the selvedge error (affecting four distinct and different portions of the selvedge) is as rare as the listed #1969a (missing gold on the stamp). A great exhibition piece with a regular non-error sheet included for comparison. Estimate = $325.00 $75.00
72 Canada #2084a. One hundred Very Fine mint Never Hinged examples of the scarcer Unitrade listed variety of the 2005 "Year of the Rooster" $1.45 Lunar New Year souvenir sheet with the dates, Canadian and Chinese flags added at the top of the sheet. All are still in intact and sealed packages as received from the post office. 2024 Unitrade = $450.00 $22.00
73 Canada #2140/3326, B13/B31. Modern used stock in two volumes. Clean and Very Fine used duplicated stock of over 1,000 stamps, 2006 to 2026 period issues, all neatly housed in two red stock books. Note a nice mix of commemoratives, definitives and semi-postals. High quality recent used Canadian material is actually quite hard to find. Estimate = $120.00 $50.00
74 Canada #2790i. Bobby Orr autographed large format $2.50 peel and stick die-cut "hockey card" stamp with the added holographic Canada Post circular sticker of authenticity. The four living hockey players autographed a certain number of these cards with Bobby Orr doing 1000 cards, but the catalogue value is reflective of his popularity as a player, almost 50 years after his retirement. The key autograph from this series and almost never seen offered anywhere. A great hockey topical in near perfect condition. 2024 Unitrade = $500.00 $150.00
75 Canada #2791i. Pristine condition and VERY RARE autographed $2.50 "Harry Howell" hockey card format high value from the 2014 issue "Original Six" NHL defensemen series (Harry passed away in 2019). The Unitrade catalogue value for these extremely popular signed stamps has proven to be meaningless, with most cards selling well over the posted catalogue value. A regular stamp (without signature or hologram) has been included for comparison. 2024 Unitrade = $230.00 $120.00
76 Canada #3064i. Used example of the major variety "missing red" permanent value definitive stamp used on small piece along with a normal for comparison. A modern error rarity! 2024 Unitrade = $1,250.00 $44.00
77 Canada #BK395. Rare complete set of all 24 different 2009 issue booklets of 10 "Permanent" Olympic stamps, issued for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, all in pristine MNH condition. Each booklet has a different numbered reverse (1 to 24) featuring a different "Did you know?" Olympic fact and photograph. An insanely difficult group to assemble with a total present day face value of $220.80. The Unitrade catalogue value of a complete set is ridiculously low considering how seldom we see sets of these booklets. 2024 Unitrade for 24 basic individual booklets = $408.00 $230.00
78 Canada #E1-E11, CE1-CE4. Fresh, sound and complete Fine/Very Fine mint Never Hinged run of all the 1898 to 1946 issue Special Delivery stamps plus the four 1942 to 1946 issue Air Post Special Delivery stamps, also Never Hinged. A great opportunity to acquire all of these complete runs of "Back of the Book" issues in very decent, attractive and collectible condition. 2023 Scott Classic US$1,371.00 = $1,850.85 $34.00
79 Canada #FWH1-FWH12. The first 12 years (1985-1996) of the Federal Wildlife Conservation "Duck" stamps in VF mint condition complete booklets. Each pane is a miniature masterpiece of Canadian wildlife art, painted by various famous wildlife artists including Robert Bateman, George McLean, Jean-Luc Grondin, J. Fenwick Lansdowne and others. The total face value of all twelve booklets is $87.00. 2024 Unitrade = $275.00 $10.00
80 Canada #O1/O10. Complete mint group of "War" & "Peace" O.H.M.S. overprinted issues (there was never an O5), pleasing well centered, fresh and Hinged. Includes Canada’s key official overprint the 50c "Forestry" issue. 2023 Scott US$306.00 = $413.10 $10.00
81 Canada #O1/O27, CO1-CO2, EO1-EO2. Selection of 20 great looking "OHMS" and "G" overprints. A mix of both mint and used, with many of the mint being Never Hinged (including O9). The used stamps mounted upside, some with very light cancels. While we noted a couple of minor faults, they are on the used (which are a small part of the total catalogue value). 2023 Scott US$526.60 = $710.91 $28.00
82 Canada #O1-O15A, CO1, EO1. Fine/Very Fine selection of seventeen mint Light Hinge/Never Hinged 1949 to 1950 issue OHMS official overprints, including regular, airmail and special delivery types. All fresh, well centered and sound stamps. Some very nice high values noted in the group. This lot represents the complete OHMS overprints. 2024 Scott US$480.05 = $648.07 $12.00
83 Canada #O16-O24, O26-O49, O38a, O39a, O45a, CO2, EO2. Complete fresh and Very Fine mint Hinged/Never hinged nearly complete run (missing only #O25) of the 1950-1963 issue "G" overprinted Officials including the three "Flying G" types as well as the Official Airmail and Special Delivery stamps. A superior quality group. 2023 Scott US$223.50 = $301.75 $10.00
84 Canada #O25, O27. Very Fine mint Never Hinged examples 1950 issue $1.00 Train Ferry and 1951 issue $1.00 Fisheries, both with "G" Official overprints. 2024 Scott US$175.00= $236.25 $16.00
85 Canada #OX4. Fresh, sound and Fine to Very Fine mint Never Hinged example of the 1913 issue brown black Officially Sealed stamp. Perfect gum. 2024 Scott US$450.00 = $607.50 $60.00
86 Canada - A "Back of the Book" HOARD. This envelope box is filled with glassines that have multiples, usually corner or plate blocks that are very heavy on the red dues, many still in their original packaging from Canada Post. Not to be outdone are "G" overprints back to the Karsh issue and some miscellaneous purple dues, airmails, special delivery. Based on the numbering on the envelope, some of these may have been organized in the days of Scott’s Specialized catalogue, and have not likely been checked out for paper types. There are better individual items (e.g. there are about 30 mint copies of CO1 and a few C1, CE1, E9 etc.) Thousands of stamps in total, with over 99% being mint (and most of those are Never Hinged). Great to expand a collection or a stock or take time to sort out paper varieties. Estimate = $200.00 $120.00
87 Canada - A small envelope box with glassines, mostly mint material from the 1940’s-1970s. Includes lots of plate blocks, some miniature panes and a few complete booklets (including a 2c War issue). There are also a couple of glassines with miscellaneous mint, a couple 1c & 3c Jubilees, 1935 Silver Jubilee, various War issue, a bit of "back of the book" and some Bileski-esque phosphor and Christmas hyped material from the 1960’s. Probably 90+% is mint, but we noted some used material including 5c & 7c used 1908 Quebec Tercentenary stamps. There is too much material to do a detailed inventory, so take a good look at the photos to appreciate the scope of the lot. Perfect for those willing to put in the "sweat equity". Estimate = $150.00 $85.00
88 Canada - Accumulation of mint and used stamps in envelopes. At first glance, it would be easy to write this lot off as another accumulation of cheaper collector duplicates. More accurately, it is a Canada collection that was sorted and put in envelopes by denomination and never mounted. A quick poke through the various envelopes found a mix of used, mint, coils, booklet panes, souvenir sheets, multiples (the 2c envelope opened with a horizontal strip of 5 red Admiral coils), cancels and some "back of the book" (noting an Officially Sealed stamp). The first issues we noted were Victorian and looks to go up to about 2010. There are little pockets of mint postage (face likely to exceed $100.00) and some used Picture Postage issues. Every envelope gives you the feeling that anything is possible, but work will be involved in putting this into order. Thousands of stamps. Estimate = $150.00 $85.00
89 Canada - Annual Collections for 1982-1985, 1987-1999. VF condition Annual Collections for the years 1981 through 1999 with the exception of the 1986 collection (strangely missing, but not an expensive one to acquire on its own). These Canada Post yearbooks contain the mint NH stamps, souvenir sheets and booklets for these years. A high-quality group of these impressive and informative publications. Total face value of the mint NH stamps, panes and souvenir sheets in the seventeen volumes is $451.55. 2023 Unitrade = $1,130.00 $70.00
90 Canada - Annual Collections for 2000-2009, 2012-2016 plus the Millennium Book. Complete run of the 2000 to 2009 (inclusive), and then 2012-2016 (inclusive) editions of Canada Post yearbooks, all in VF condition with matching slipcases (many unopened with intact original shrink wrap). These Canada Post publications contain the mint NH stamps, souvenir sheets and booklets along with information regarding each issue. A high-quality group of these impressive and informative publications. Total face value of the mint NH stamps, panes and souvenir sheets in the 14 volumes plus the Millennium book is $867.98. 2023 Unitrade = $1,963.00 $325.00
91 Canada - Bankers Box that acted as a repository for stamps that had no immediate place in this collector’s arsenal. It starts off with a couple of starter collections (still lots of catalogue value here) and progresses to stockpages and some old bidboard lots that were purchased and set aside. There are a few bundles of stockcards, album pages and loose stamps too. As for the stamps themselves, we noted a bunch of 1950’s and "red due" plate blocks, an attractive group of "back of the book" and assorted mostly used issues through the 1930’s. There are some 1960’s presentation cards, a CAPEX ’78 presentation set of three (plus a handful of the Ashton-Potter cards) and a pad (yes, a pad) of 1c MacDonald "caricature" precancel sheets. Noted better singles around every corner, but a good sort is needed. Estimate = $150.00 $85.00
92 Canada - Cartonload Conglomeration. Extensive mint and used accumulation of Canada loose in a carton, early to modern. Noted stamps in glassines, in "102" sales cards, in sleeves, on pages & stock cards; etc. Includes mint & used singles, sets, souvenir sheets, stocks, partial collections. Great source for cancels & varieties. Condition runs from Very Good to Very Fine. (1,000's). Owner's estimate = $250.00 $11.00
93 Canada - Collection/Accumulation. Well organized mint and used consignment ranging from Large Queens up through the mid-1950s period. Somewhat mixed condition in the early material but very clean and decent quality noted in the more recent issues. The range of issues includes regular postal issues, in singles, blocks and booklet panes, as well as "Back of the Book" with Airmails, Special Deliveries, Postage Dues, precancels and revenues noted in the mix. The consignor has totalled the material by Scott catalogue at over US$1,600.00 (=$2,160.00 CDN). Take a good look at scans to assist you in determining your bid. Estimate = $325.00 $15.00
94 Canada - Dealer’s accumulation on over fifty black 2-pocket stockcards, plus some glassines, "102" cards and manila stockcards thrown in. A real hodgepodge of material, with a matching amount of variability in value and condition. We noted 1908 Quebecs, a misperforated used block of 1c Edward VII, 2-line Admiral revalue, coils, special delivery, QV precancels, plate blocks, a nice used block of CO1 and lots of 4-hole OHMS perfins (including on Chateau $ and CE2). There is good value throughout. Estimate = $130.00 $75.00
95 Canada - For some collectors the best part of using stockbooks is the prerogative to change your mind at the turn of a page. This lovely 64-page Lighthouse stockbook with acetate strips and glassine interleaves and its blue cover is nearly new, housing relatively few stamps. However, when there are stamps, they are generally worth looking out for. It starts with official overprints, including "OHMS" on the Oil Well and "G" on the Fish dollar. There are plate blocks, including some Centennials, then shuffles over to 45c era Christmas and Art stamps and then jumps backwards to a pair of Export dollar plate blocks, and a trio of 20c Quebec Tercentenaries (which have been regummed). There is a nice plate block of 25(!) of the 1934 Cartier, the mysterious page of France that is in most of these albums, with a return to the back of the book (dues and airmails). Finally, we finish with a couple of 2c Admiral booklet panes and a War Tax block (all regummed) and a few mint dollar values (a couple are regummed, the rest hinged). An interested grouping once you can make sense of it. Easily worth the estimated value given. Estimate = $140.00 $210.00
96 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 1. Mint selection 1957-1990 mounted on either home-made pages, or "Parliament" branded pages (the latter, within black mounts). A comprehensive and likely near complete run of stamps for the period, including high-values. The pages are neatly arranged within a deluxe 3-ring green album with matching slipcase. Conservatively valued for the usable postage value alone. Total face value = $308.89 $130.00
97 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 10. Wonderful assortment of sheets, souvenir packs, souvenir sheets and complete booklets from the 1990's. A nice grouping, all mint Never Hinged and including better items such as Greeting booklets, 1997 Lunar New Years souvenir sheets (both regular and Hong Kong 97' printing), 1998 RCMP souvenir sheets (including stamp show printings) and 1999 Millenium issue (complete set of 17 panes). All neatly arranged on 30 Vario brand stocksheets within a blue deluxe 3-ring album (with slipcase). A couple of FDC and a Hong Kong souvenir sheet (Lunar New Years, to match the Canadian version) were not counted. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $509.22 $210.00
98 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 11. Sheets / Souvenir Sheets / Complete Booklets. A collector accumulated assortment of mint Never Hinged material from the 2004-2009 period, arranged on over 30 Vario stocksheets, within a blue deluxe 3-ring album (with slipcase). A nice showing of material for the period, with many higher values / self-adhesive issues. Also included are a couple "other items" including a Chinese MNH sheet (to match the Canadian Lunar New Years issue) and a 2007 "Purdy's Chocolate" presentation cover (both not counted in the total). A true "premium postage" lot, keep what you need and use the rest. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $563.67 $100.00
99 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 12. Mint Never Hinged selection of 53 souvenir sheets from the late 1990's to mid-2000's, all neatly arranged on 9x Vario stocksheets. Includes better items such as the 2010 Vancouver Olympics bronze/silver/gold overprints. An attractive grouping, very conservatively valued for the total useable face value postage. Total face value = $105.03 $80.00
100 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 2. Modern accumulation of coils strips, souvenir sheets, booklets and sheets from the 2011-2012 period, neatly arranged on 8 Vario brand stockpages. Pristine material including many high-values, "P" stamps and self-adhesives. Noted Lunar New Years, "Will and Kate", Chemistry, Mental Health (semi postal), Fergie Jenkins, Roadside Canada and International Year of Forests (to name a few). A nice lot to be kept intact, or keep what you need and use the rest as postage (as this would be a premium postage lot). Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $519.69 $120.00
101 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 3. Group of early 1980's to mid-1990's thematic packs, booklets, souvenir sheets and complete sheets, all neatly arranged on Vario type stocksheets within a deluxe 3-ring album (with slipcase). Carefully arranged by the collector, this group is often "doubled up" with two examples of many of the issues. We noted better items such as 1990 "Majestic Forests" panes, 1992 "Canada Day" sheets and 1995 "Superman" booklets. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $355.82 $80.00
102 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 4. Choice offering of 2000-2004 issues on 22 Vario brand stocksheets within a blue colored deluxe 3-ring album (with slipcase). All pristine mint Never Hinged material included blocks, panes, souvenir sheets, booklets and presentation packs. Many better topical themes from the period were covered such as Hockey, "Greeting Stamps", Queen Mother, Fresh Waters, Tall Ships, Corals, Birds, Tourist Attractions and Lunar New Years (to name a few). While these should appeal to the Canadian collector to fill in some gaps, this would also be considered a "premium" postage lot. All neatly arranged by a collector with time and effort placed into maintaining the stamps in perfect condition. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $392.04 $80.00
103 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 5. Mint Never Hinged (mostly, with the exception of a couple of the earlier issues) collection of stamp from 1927-2008 arranged semi-chronologically on 38 Vario brand stocksheets within a (green) deluxe 3-ring album (with slipcase). While not a complete run for the period, the collector assembled this group with purpose, carefully and arranging each stamp, often with details of the issue. Noted many better items such as Wildlife issues, Art Canada, coils, high-values, panes, booklets souvenir sheets and numerous "die cut" singles. A few precancel stamps noted, but not counted in the total. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $560.30 $42.00
104 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 6. Mint Never Hinged 1939-2007 assortment of Plate Blocks / blocks, neatly arranged on 38 Vario brand stocksheets within a (blue) deluxe 3-ring album with slipcase. Many better items noted included a few earlier plate blocks, 1972 Earth Sciences sheets, 1995 Migratory Wildlife (including re-prints) and Lunar New Years. Also included, but not counted in the valuation are several First Day Covers. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $684.30 $290.00
105 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 7. Selection of mint Never Hinged Defintive issues 1932-2000, neatly arranged (with many identified) on 21 Vario brand stocksheets inside a green padded Minkus brand 3-ring album (with slipcase). While there is smattering of pre-1950 material, including some better GeoVI complete booklets, the strength is clearly in the Elizabethan era, with a great showing of different printings (often identified), plate blocks, singles, panes, complete booklets and MANY high-values. We also noted some precancels, FDC and "strike mail" issues, not counted in the total. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $734.89 $325.00
106 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 8. Selection of (mostly) Defintive issues 1992-2010, arranged on 24 Vario brand stocksheets, within a green deluxe 3-ring album (with slipcase). Loads of better material throughout including complete booklets, "Edible Berries" (including some reprints), "Fruit Tree" definitives (including different identified papers / printings), high-values (up to $8.00, including the $8.00 Grizzly pane of 4), Vancouver 2010 overprint booklets x3, coil strips (including gutter strips), souvenir sheets and more! Lots of "plus value" material here, all in Post Office fresh Never Hinged condition. We even noted a few Lunar New Year souvenir sheets in the mix. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the high-quality of the group. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $1,293.55 $425.00
107 Canada - Marvelous Mint Collection Part 9. Attractive mint Never Hinged "Christmas" collection / accumulation 1964-2008, neatly arranged on 28 Vario brand stocksheets, within a green deluxe 3-ring album (with slipcase). While most of the basic stamps are covered in the earlier periods, this collection excels in the 1980-2008 period with a wonderful assortment of singles, blocks, plate blocks and complete booklets. A nice chance to knock off a good chunk of the available "extras" (plate blocks / booklets) in addition to the basic issues. Conservatively valued for the postage face value alone. Total face value = $963.77 $90.00
108 Canada - Mint souvenir and mini-sheets (1978-1998) and a 1930’s "Royal" study. The souvenir sheets start with CAPEX ’78 and is fairly complete for the next two decades, including a couple of show overprints (with the occasional duplicate) and some presentation packs (e.g. classic transportation, Lunar New Year). There is a touch of non-Canadian issues that are not counted in the total face value of $169.07. The book finishes with a dozen pages with 1937 Coronation and 1939 Royal Visit with large multiples, some plate blocks, some non-Scott listed plate flaws and nice postmarks. All of this is safely housed in a large 30 page full-sheet UniSafe four post binder with matching green slipcase (retail $110.00 alone). Lots of premium material in this enticing offering. Estimate = $200.00 $85.00
109 Canada - Modern selection of 126 different COVID period issues used, plus 7 different personal picture postage stamps 2020-2023 and the Flying Postal Truck issued only to postal employees. These modern issues are incredibly had to find postally used! Estimate = $150.00 $90.00
110 Canada - Modern used commemorative issue "kiloware". One pound (1 lb) of mostly 2015-2023 "P" issues on single, close-cut paper, with around 1400-1500 stamps in total. No Christmas, no definitives and generally clean selected material in which we didn't see any "pen cancels". About 25% of this mix will fall into the "COVID period" where postally used commemoratives were seldom used. Increasingly tough material to find. Estimate = $150.00 $65.00
111 Canada - Mostly mint stock from a disorganized dealer. While the material appears to all be from the 1920’s-1970’s, most of the time there is no order to the material (none at all!). This material was often set aside for future sorting, sometimes reusing glassines and envelopes which are not a reliable indicator of what is inside. However, when you get into it, you will see that there is better material everywhere. Tons of mint, mostly never hinged plate blocks, including War issue, GeoVI, Karsh, Wilding and Cameo issues. There are mint singles everywhere, such as a Never Hinged 1946 Peace set, E8 and various 1930’s issues. The stock has booklet panes (including a few postally used) and lots of coils in wholesale quantities. There is a strong showing of red postage due plate blocks and some OHMS overprint / G overprint / perfin official blocks. About 95% of this lot is mint. Given a very conservative estimate, with the opportunity for lots of reward for the patient collector willing to sort this out. Estimate = $300.00 $70.00
112 Canada - Olde-tyme complete booklet holding from GeoVI Mufti to QEII Centennial. Includes War issues with English, French and Bilingual covers, in regular, gift and chewing gum formats (bit of minor duplication and the occasional cover fault noted). There is a disorganized offering of Karsh, Wilding, Cameo and Centennial booklets, but overall condition is well above average. There is a bit of wholesale quantities in the Centennial, noting 10 examples each of BK62 and BK69b (types I and II). About 80 booklets in total. Previous owner’s accurate 2022 Unitrade = $908.50 $32.00
113 Canada - Precancel Hoard. Significant accumulation/collection of Canada Roller/Bar type pre-cancels from a large remainder of dealer stock. The lot consists of a 32 page stock book with contents starting with QV 1c green "Leaf" type T and running through Types U, V, W, X and Y, up to recent. There are 1000s of pre-cancels with huge duplication on most issues. In addition there is a quantity of envelopes and dealer "102" cards containing types T, U, V, W, X and Y, again with 1000s of stamps with sometimes heavy duplication. A great lot for the precancel specialist looking for varieties. Estimate = $350.00 $30.00
114 Canada - Quarterly Pack Bonanza. An all-different assortment of 15 Quarterly Packs, ranging from the 3rd quarter of 2006 to the 3rd quarter of 2011. These packages represent the easiest way to assemble a mint offering from these periods, with a "one of each" format including the self-adhesive stamps in "die cut" format. The total face value in many of these has increased over the issue price, as the permanent ("P") stamps have seen a rise in postal value. Now that these are listed in the back of the Unitrade catalogue, collectors have had an increased interest in acquiring them for the sake of completion. Conservatively valued for the total original issue price. Total original issue price = $250.41 $46.00
115 Canada - Small box of 110+ complete booklets from the Caricature issue up to the 63c Oilers booklet of 2013. There is some duplication in the earlier issues because of different booklet covers. Some of the booklets were "counter stock", and have been opened but many are from philatelic stock. Overall condition is good. The catalogue value on these will add up quickly, but we are going to use the conservative yardstick of the total usable postage value. Total face value = $236.31 $85.00
116 Canada - The Great Canadian "Catch-All" lot. A Bankers Box, filled with Canadian mint, used, singles, stock, FDC, packets and loads of enjoyment. We noted used Centennials (thousands), mint Lunar New Years souvenir sheets, a few dozen FDC, several WWII anniversary thematic collections, 2000 Millennium stamps special edition hardcover book, stockbook with a smattering of mint and used QV-QEII, used stock #141-1715 sorted into "102 cards" within a box, hundreds of glassines envelopes with mint and used late GeoVI to early QEII and finally, hundreds of black dealer cards with used Canada QV to 1980's (with better values, such as $1 Parliament (#159) and no less than 35x $1 Fisheries and 50x $1 Totems. A good sort ahead for the intrepid collector. Estimate = $250.00 $200.00
117 Canada - Two Bankers Boxes filled with 32 lbs of mostly on-paper used modern Canada stamps packed in baggies as received local charities (although it looks to be a mostly definitive issue mixture). The sheer volume alone makes this quite worthwhile at the estimate given by the consignor. Estimate = $150.00 $70.00
118 Canada - U-Haul Box of Canadian Chaos! Amongst the albums, partial collections, stockpages and Canada Post collections includes a batch of early tagged multiples with Winnipeg cancels (ex.Bileski) that includes cello and booklet panes (includes both tagged and untagged) and including a couple of postally used Centennial panes. There are a number of used stocks, some starting in the Victorian era, others not until QEII, but there is a wide range of material, some with individual value, some with cancel interest, some perfect for stock or research. There is a bit of mint material scattered throughout and some back of the book (particularly airmail and dues) that have potential. As always condition is mixed (but there are filler copies of BC #7 and Canada #103). Estimate = $160.00 $22.00
119 Canada - Used Small Queen study of printings, shades, perforations and cancels. Includes copious notes from a previous owner tacked to the back of most pages. Lots of great cancels including "SON" (socked on the nose) CDS and corks. Includes values to 10c (a couple of these are quite faulty) and the Widow Weeds. Over 300 stamps and four covers to keep you occupied for a while. As a bonus, there is a page of mostly used Jubilees, up to the 15c. Take a good look at the scans, as there many condition issues, which is why we decided to estimate this grouping rather than do the catalogue value. Estimate = $130.00 $15.00
120 Canada - Used Souvenir Sheet Bonanza. A wonderful assortment of 80 used souvenir sheets on paper, all neatly (and accurately) cut on single paper from philatelic mail, accumulated over several years. Many better issues such as World Heritage Sites, Lunar New Years, multiple value definitive sheets and 2012 Diamond Jubilee. Duplicated in areas, but all with clean postmarks (no "pen" cancels in this group), which is a task in itself for modern mail. Also included are 7 different $1.80 "Hockey Card" issues, all neatly postmarked. Estimate = $200.00 $110.00
121 Canada and Newfoundland - A mix of "Borek" and quadrilled pages in an older-style Lighthouse springback album. The Canada is mostly mint, with a slow start in the Victorian era, but noted a mint 1/2c and 5c Jubilee. There are 4c and 5c mint GeoV Admirals and a mix of mint low values through the Confederation, Scroll, Arch and other KGV issues. The War and Peace sets are just missing the high values. The Elizabethan era is fairly complete and appears to be never hinged from 1967-1982. Buried in the back, there are about 30 coil singles and pairs followed by a smattering of "back of the book", but stronger in official overprints and noted three semi-official airmail stamps. The Newfoundland is mostly used, with some of the 1880 series, a 60c Henry VII from the Cabot set, a mint 36c Caribou and J1-J6. About 600 stamps in total. The binder might need a bit of a clean, but otherwise in reasonable condition. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
122 Canada and Provinces - Green 64-page Lighthouse stockbook with acetate strips and glassine interleaves starts out with a selection of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI (#3, space filler catalogue $1200.00) and Newfoundland (wholesale quantities of the Cabot issue). The Canada includes a few Cents, Large and Small Queens, 40 "Map Stamps" (20 with no gum), Never Hinged plate block of the "Totem Dollar", several Canada Post commemorative envelopes, a few first day covers and what appears to be a complete set of the 46c Millennium blocks. Expect the condition of the Victorian-era material to have some faults if used, and no gum if mint. The stockbook has one glassine page with a rip, otherwise is in near-new condition. Estimate = $180.00 $32.00
123 Canada Covers - British Columbia RPO "End of Track" Rarities Duo. A duo of postcards, the first being postmarked "End of Steel G.T.P. West, BC" Dec 3rd 1912. The second being "E of T & P.R. RPO" (End of Track and Prince Rupert, Railway Post Office) Oct 16th 1913. Two rarities, both for the BC postmark collector and RPO Railway Post Office Collector as these Post Offices were really the "End of the Line" travelling offices as the railway construction progressed. Of particular note, the End of Steel postmarked card's message reads (in part) "Hello Ray, I'm on my way out of the mountains, I have been seven days walking eighty-two miles through the snow, in some places on the trail it is drifted so full you can't hardly get through" (signed Ray Hamilton). The End of Track has a pencilled price of $550 on it, from decades ago (hard to know if it actually sold for this!). Estimate = $300.00 $90.00
124 Canada Covers - Byron Harmon Picture Postcards. Dealer's inventory of Real Photo Postcards, by renowned Canadian photographer Byron Harmon (1876-1942). Harmon was renowned for his pioneer work photographing the Canadian Rockies with iconic scenes of the British Columbia / Alberta corridor with both topographical and wildlife shots. Harmon's postcards with their printed trademark "Along the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway" printed backs are easily recognizable and widely collected. This stock represents a gold-mine for the Harmon collector to compare cards / printings. Duplicated in spots, but with 417 postcards in total. Estimate = $300.00 $475.00
125 Canada Covers - Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) Perfin Cover Collection. An astounding group of 84 Canada / Worldwide covers, each bearing the franking of a CPR perfin stamp from the 1915-1977 period. A long-time accumulation, with many of these covers being offered for the first time (ever), as this includes personal family correspondence covers from the collector (an employee himself of CPR). An array of both Canadian and Foreign usages, as CPR had offices in many countries abroad. Lots of better usages from Admirals to Centennials, with regular, returned mail and registered. Also included is 30-page write-up by Jon Johnson on the CPR perfins and their use, plus a small glassine of loose CPR perfins on USA issues. We don't see large accumulations of CPR perfin covers (or any perfin covers) often. Estimate = $200.00 $140.00
126 Canada Covers - Centennial and Fisher postal stationery uncut strips of three mimeo rouletted post cards in wholesale quantities. Includes 5c Centennial (Webb P253 - 8 strips at $40.00 each), 6c Centennial (P276 - 13 strips at $25.00 each), 6c on 5c Centennial (P273 - 23 strips @ $40.00 each) and 6c Fisher (P282 - 44 strips @ $8.00 each). Generally excellent condition. Total 2019 Webb catalogue value = $1,917.00 $100.00
127 Canada Covers - First Day Cover Accumulation. A "double-high pizza box", stuffed with 898 First Day Covers, primarily from the 1980's / 1990's but noted several nice multiple value souvenir sheet FDC from the past 10 years. All are Canada Post cachet covers, which sold for a premium over the face value of the stamps. Valued for the total face value of the stamps alone (original cost would be significantly more). Total face value = $698.98 $65.00
128 Canada Covers - First Day Cover. Small box containing a collectors accumulation of 582 Canada Post issue cachet FDC from the late 1970's to late 1990's (and then strangely, a group of 30 FDC from the 2009 / 2010 period for the Vancouver Winter Olympics). Several groups still in Post Office packaging. While the Post Office issued FDC were sold at a premium over the face value, we have only counted the total face value of the stamps. Total face value = $512.67 $42.00
129 Canada Covers - Mourning covers. Hoard of 92 covers from 1849-1965, showing almost every possible configuration of envelope (with differing widths of black borders or flap edging). Lots of Small Queens and Admirals with potential cancel interest, some usages to the UK (including one postage due) and even a 2c RLS (registration stamp usage). Several contain the original letters or death notices, which are always sought after by mourning cover collectors. As these are among the least philatelic forms of postal history, the condition is a bit mixed. However, there are still a few philatelically inspired covers, including for the death of King George V, the last day of the colony of Newfoundland and the last flight of Prairie airmail service. Includes RPSC article by Arfken on the subject of mourning covers. A very difficult to duplicate lot. Estimate = $300.00 $55.00
130 Canada Covers - New Brunswick Postmark Collection. One bulging binder, containing over 100 pages of NB postmarks on either cover, postcard, stamp or piece. A very comprehensive group, with each postmark receiving a printed page giving location, population, Post Office opening / closing dates and origin of the town name (with many also being accompanied by a printed map to show location). We noted many are also separated and organized by County (Kings, Queens, Kent, Albert, York etc). Sure to be a few hidden gems for the postmark enthusiast. A total of 82 covers / postcards and 138 cancels on stamp / piece. A intriguing group, offered as received. Estimate = $160.00 $120.00
131 Canada Covers - Official Mail grouping of 68 Federal Government related covers from the 1920's to 1960's. Several more interesting covers including OHMS / "G" usages, Free Franks, postmarks and Parliamentary signatures. A great grouping to research the Free Frank markings and signatures, with lots of variety throughout. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the scope of the lot. Estimate = $120.00 $0.00
132 Canada Covers - Postal History / Postal Stationery menagerie, mounted on home-made black pages within a binder. A real mix of material here, which ranges from the usual to oddball material, including some real gems! The items of particular note are Kingston ONT 1883 5c Small Queen + 5c Registered Letter Stamp (RLS) to England (tatty, but in better shape this would easily be a $300 item), a duo of Vancouver BC 1933 Norwegian Ship mail covers back to Norway (M/S Knute Nelson), Calgary Stampede 1929, a few wartime covers to Argentina and a pair of 1897 Moosomin ASSA postmark Small Queen covers. There is a tag on the album which shows this group was originally an auction lot bought in alberta, likely over 30 years ago! Offered as received. Estimate = $200.00 $13.00
133 Canada Covers - Private Cachet / Early Canadian First Day Cover Accumulation. A diverse selection of 75 covers, from the 1932-1970 period, with all being selected for either a privately produced illustrated cachet or high-catalogue value (based on Unitrade FDC pricing). We noted many better items including a 1932 Ottawa Conference "A.C.Roe" (Roessler), 1932 Quebec Citadel (registered, Ottawa P.O. Financial Branch), 1970 Manitoba Centennial (matched set of Plate Blocks, Cole cachet) etc. Many are still in the original dealer sleeves from when purchased. A nice quality lot. Estimate = $150.00 $70.00
134 Canada Covers - RPO Railway Post Office Cancels. A mostly Western Canadian selection of 80 RPO cancel covers / postcards from QV to QEII. Accumulated over the course of several years from sorting through covers, only about half look to ever be researched or identified as to the RPO catalogue number. A good research lot, with potential finds for the intrepid collector. Also included (but not counted in the before-mentioned total) are several cancels on stamp / piece, some railway related covers and a few photographs (modern) of a CPR mail car. Perfect for the railway enthusiast. Estimate = $130.00 $85.00
135 Canada Covers - Winnipeg, Manitoba ORB cancels, Part 1. GeoV / GeoVI registered cover accumulation. An attractive grouping of 40 registered covers from the George V / George VI period, all bearing Winnipeg "ORB" CDS cancels and sent via registered mail. Many better items including several nice multiple colour Admiral frankings (including 14c and 16c registered rates to England). It took many years to put this grouping together, most purchased one at a time to accumulate a study of the Winnipeg ORB cancel. Estimate = $150.00 $70.00
136 Canada Covers - Winnipeg, Manitoba ORB cancels, Part 2. AR (Avis de Reception / Acknowledgement of Receipt) Post Office cards from the 1930's / 1940's. An astonishing hoard of 193 "AR" cards, from the GeoV / GeoVI era, each being dispatched from Winnipeg, Manitoba and receiving the Winnipeg "ORB" style CDS cancel. We note many of these were headed for smaller towns across Western Canada with receiving postmarks. These were accumulated by a collector to study the use of the Winnipeg ORB cancel, but they would prove to be an excellent study of the Post Office printings of the AR card as well. Estimate = $150.00 $36.00
137 Canada Covers - Winnipeg, Manitoba ORB cancels, Part 3. The balance of the Winnipeg, MB "ORB" style CDS postmark accumulation, consisting of 103 covers and 3 cancels on piece, each bearing the Winnipeg ORB cancel. An interesting accumulation, spanning the GeoV to QEII period. Noted several better items including FFC (First Flight Covers), incoming / transit mail, FDC (including better GeoVI era), stationery and registered mail. Accumulated over a number of years by a collector for the purpose of studying the use of the Winnipeg ORB cancellation device. Estimate = $150.00 $70.00
138 Canada Literature - A philatelic literature holding, with a flair towards postal history. A Bankers Box, stuffed with a wide array of literature from the common everyday handbooks to the somewhat obscure. Over 30 publications included Post Office checklists of Western Canada / PEI / New Brunswick, RPO / Squared Circle / Slogan reference books, two early "Jarrett" catalogues (vest-pocket sized), Post West volumes 1-3 privately bound, Postal Guides and a few "Proof Strike" books. Take a good look at the scans to see what is there. A treasure trove for the philatelic bibliophile. Estimate = $150.00 $50.00
139 Canada Revenues #BCL29/BCL63. Very Fine mint Never Hinged selection of 9 different 1928 to 1981 issue British Columbia Provincial Law stamps. The full run of Van Dam catalogue numbers is: #BCL 29, BCL38, BCL51, BCL52, BCL55, BCL57, BCL58, BCL60 and BCL63. A top notch and colourful offering. 2022 van Dam = $542.50 $22.00
140 Canada Revenues #BCL63 British Columbia Law Stamps. Very Fine mint Never Hinged upper right position "counter" block of 10 of the rouletted $1.00 blue with pale red underprint from the 1981 thirteenth series "Standing Justice" provincial law stamp. Catalogued as 10 single mint stamps but a counter block of 10 should command a premium. 2022 van Dam = $3,125.00 $12.00
141 Canada Revenues #PC1-PC5, PC4d. Prairie Provinces Conservation Stamps. Very Fine mint Never Hinged complete 1942 issue set of five, all in archivally fresh and pristine corner blocks of four. Note that the 25c blue (Canada Geese) block contains two examples of the Van Dam listed variety #PC4d (thick white frame line at right, no frame line at left) A great Canadian "Bird" topical set. Five stamps in the lot are also the premium "perforations all around" types. 2022 van Dam = $445.00 $65.00
142 Canada Revenues #QR4. Mint OG Hinged example of the rare 1870 issue 2c green "Beaver" Provincial Registration stamp. This is the key value to the entire Quebec Registration stamp series. 2022 van Dam = $350.00 $80.00
143 Canada Revenues - Dealer’s stock of Canadian revenue stamps, strong in law stamps with most provinces represented, including better BC, Alberta, Manitoba (includes ML110b, ML111b, ML112b), lots of Quebec registration stamps (includes QR25/28), a nice Newfoundland inland revenue and a beautiful KEVII cigarette excise stamp. Of particular note is a trio of heavily punched Alberta Holiday tax stamps and three Telegraph franks (CPR and GNW). Most are used, a few are duplicated to about 10 copies, but there are all kinds of different printings, perforations and shades to be explored. The van Dam catalogue value on this will be substantial. Estimate = $220.00 $95.00
144 Canada Revenues - Interesting holding with very little order to it, that has some obviously better, such as $2 and $5 consular fee stamps, a couple of red war savings certificate stamps, BC law stamps and lots of Weights and Measures and Electrical Inspection (including a complete document). There might be some better hiding amongst the many excise, war tax and customs duty stamps. One of the most notable sections here are the tobacco labels and strips, with many overprints and revalues and even a few long strips, with some in French. A terrific lot for the patient sorter with a good eye. Estimate = $180.00 $38.00
145 Canadian Provinces - NB, NS and PEI Sampler. All mint duplicated selection of 33 pre-Confederation stamps, all organized and laid out on one Hagner stock sheet. Noted some paper and perf varieties but all valued as the basic Scott listed type. Expect a few faults in an old-time accumulation of this type. 2023 Scott Classic US$616.00 = $831.60 $26.00
146 Canadian Provinces - British Columbia #7, 7a. Mint and used examples of the blue and pale blue shades of the 1865 issue 3p "Seal of BC". The #7 (blue) is used, the #7a (pale blue) is mint no gum. Both have a few "nibbled" perfs, otherwise a sound and Fine duo. 2024 Scott US$285.00 = $384.75 $24.00
147 Canadian Provinces - Nova Scotia #4. Four full margin Very Fine, lightly cancelled used example of the 1851 issue 6p yellow green imperforate. A sound and superior quality key pre-Confederation pence piece. Unitrade is $1,200.00 for Very Fine used. 2024 Scott US$825.00 = $1,113.75 $48.00
148 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #30, 59. Sound and Fine mint Hinged as well as used examples of the 1865 issue 13c orange "Fishing Ship" plus the 1887 issue 10c black "Schooner". A great seagoing group for the nautical themed topical collector. 2023 Scott Classic US$570.00 = $769.50 $16.00
149 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #61-74. The complete 1897 issue Cabot/Discovery commemorative set of 14 in Fine/Very Fine mint Light Hinge/Hinge Remnant condition. A high quality set, fresh, sound and well centered. A popular 19th century BNA issue. 2024 Scott US$331.45 = $447.45 $75.00
150 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #75, 76. Sound and Fine mint examples of two different "ONE CENT" surcharge types on the 3c Victoria. The more common #75 is no gum, the better #76 is OG Hinge Remnant. 2023 Scott Classic US$360.00 = $486.00 $50.00
151 Canadian Provinces - Newfoundland #127, 128, 129, 130, 160. All Very Fine and mint Hinged/Hinge Remnant quintet of 1920 to 1929 issue "TWO CENTS" and "THREE CENTS" provisional surcharges. 2023 Scott Classic US$258.00 = $348.20 $38.00
152 Canadian Provinces - Nova Scotia #2, 3. Used examples of the two distinct shades of the 3d blue Nova Scotia imperf issue, consisting of the 1851 bright blue printing and the later dark blue printing. The #2 has a couple of shallow thins noted for the record. 2024 Scott US$525.00 = $708.75 $13.00
153 China - PRC #1074a. Superb and Post Office fresh UNFOLDED and mint NH 1971 issue "50th Anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party" upper sheet margin with inscription se-tenant strip of three (#1072-1074). As nice a strip as you will ever see! 2024 Scott US$375.00 = $506.25 $16.00
154 Cook Islands #7/140, 287-289. All Very Fine mint Hinged/Never Hinged selection of 58 almost all different stamps, 1892 to 1979 period issues, mostly complete sets. Note that the #7 has a short perf at left and has not been valued in the total. 2024 Scott US$699.75 = $944.65 $13.00
155 Czech Republic / Slovakia - Navy-blue 16-page Lighthouse brand stockbook with the basis for a good start to a post-breakup collection of these former constituents of Czechoslovakia. The majority of issues are 1993-1998, with a few sheetlets or souvenir sheets. There is a bit of minor duplication, sometimes because there are both mint and used examples (more-so for Czech Republic). Great topical interest (e.g. art, birds, sports, flora) and overall condition is excellent, with the mint appearing to be all Never Hinged. About 700 stamps in total. Estimate = $140.00 $32.00
156 Czechoslovakia #1/53. Specialized "Hradcany at Prague", the first issues of Czechoslovakia, with perforated, imperforate, shades and perforation varieties. Attractive, well centered, mint Hinged selection on stockpage with 45 different stamps. Includes a no longer recognized shade of #5 (note indicates that it may have been printer’s waste) and imperforate varieties in the last set. The most notable individual items are #43a, #44a and #47a. 2023 Scott US$256.60 = $346.41 $10.00
157 Czechoslovakia #61-63. President Masaryk 1920 complete issue in both perforated and imperforate issues, including both shades of the blue 125h denomination, with an extra copy of the ultramarine shade #61a. The 500h value is not recognized in Scott as an imperforate and is counted at the lowest value for the imperforates. Nine lovely, mint Hinged, full margined copies. 2023 Scott US$300.50 = $405.68 $10.00
158 Czechoslovakia #65/256 plus Back of the Book. Volume 1 of an extensive collection in a Minkus album (with dust jacket), from the 1920’s up until the Second World War. Early issues include #92-#94 with differing types, perforations (e.g. #80a, #81a), imperforates and a good-looking range of values from the 1925 Masaryk issue. The "back of the book" includes a good offering of semi-postals, postage dues, newspaper stamps, etc. This album concludes with a selection of Eastern Silesia (includes #S22/30), Bohemia and Moravia, Slovakia (almost all used, including some nice postage dues). Scott numbers and (fairly representative) catalogue values in pencil. Most stamps in black mounts, but expect mint stamps to be Hinged. Note: Many of the better early sets, including semi-postals and airmails have been removed from this collection and are listed elsewhere in this sale. That being said, there is still LOTS of value in both the stamps and album here! Owner’s older Scott (year unknown) US$1070.10 = $1,444.64 $13.00
159 Czechoslovakia #200B/2308, P26. A remarkably near-complete collection of mint and used souvenir sheets issued between 1934-80 housed in a Minkus 2-post binder with dust jacket. Starts with singles (only) from the National Anthem sheets, but then gets into a steady offering of one mint and one used copy of most of the souvenir sheets issued in the next 40+ years. Includes 434a, 556, 719, 1129a, 1134/1134a, 2190 (imperforate). In case this isn’t special enough, this collection includes lots of material found in Scott footnotes, such as "1939/1940 World’s Fair" overprints in a range of styles and colours and the 1943 London Exhibition souvenir sheet. More modern issues often have an example of the imperforate sheet. The album concludes with a number of pages with multiples, showpieces and presentation cards (noted a 1945 National uprising issue on card - both mint and used), which will add eye appeal to any collection. Earlier mint are Hinged, overall condition is remarkable. A rare opportunity to get so many souvenir sheets at one time. Well worth the conservative estimated value. Estimate = $500.00 $10.00
160 Czechoslovakia #266/2048 plus Back of the Book. Volume 2 of this collection in a Minkus 2-post binder (no dust jacked) with a very complete range of mint issues from the end of WWII to 1975, with a bit of "back of the book". Stamps are individually mounted in black mounts, with glassine interleaves between pages. You will be pressed to find a blank space in this album (note: there are no souvenir sheets). Somewhere around 1960 the stamps went from being Hinged to Never Hinged. We noted an abundance of better topical issues (e.g. birds, sports, arts). Stamps are in excellent condition, as is the binder. About 1700 stamps. The owner catalogued years ago, which appears to be representative of current values. Total owner’s Scott (year unknown) US$1215.45 = $1,640.85 $10.00
161 Czechoslovakia #793/1895. Collection of souvenir sheets / miniature sheets in a Minkus brand binder (with dust jacket). Often missed by collectors of both Czechoslovakia and topicals are these souvenir sheets/mini-sheetlets that almost universally show up as a footnote in Scott. Includes a near complete run from 1957-1973 (missing #1132 and 1354-60), including the 1958 UNESCO issues and #1080, 1129a, 1439 and up to the flower issue of 1973. These sheetlets are almost all mint, almost all Never Hinged and in excellent condition. Very difficult to duplicate. 2023 Scott US$1194.00 = $1,611.90 $10.00
162 Czechoslovakia #1904/2177, C65/C82. Continuation lot of souvenir sheets and mini-sheetlets, all very fine mint Never Hinged, mounted in a Minkus 2-post binder (no dustcover). Includes a near complete run from late 1973 to 1978 plus a number of airmail sheetlets issued between 1967-1973. Includes #1950-55, 2126-29 and C77-C82. Excellent more recent Czechoslovakian material that isn’t often seen. 2023 Scott US$549.50 = $741.83 $10.00
163 Czechoslovakia #2049/2539. Volume 3 in a Minkus 2-post binder (no dust jacket), covering 1976-1984, all mint Never Hinged, missing very few stamps. Includes a number of 1980-1984 souvenir sheets, including better ones for international philatelic exhibitions. As previously, the mint are in black mounts and the pages have glassine interleaves. What is different with this album is that in the late 1970’s the collector decided to "double up" the pages, meaning you get two consecutive identical pages, one with mint stamps, the other with used. The used aren’t as complete as the mint, but they are pretty close. Overall condition is excellent. About 700 stamps. 2023 Scott US$525.70 = $709.70 $13.00
164 Czechoslovakia #B1/B63. Attractive mint group of 36 early semi-postals, all 1919 overprints on Austrian regular issues. These were sold at a 50% premium over face value, in Prague, for charitable purposes. This group are all hinged, but very fresh and in good condition (with the exception of B61 which has damage to the top and is not counted in the total catalogue value). Includes B1-3, 5-16, 18, 20, 27-31, 34, 36, 42, 47-52, 55-58, 63. The best is B57, the 10Kr blue (on the bottom line), which is lightly hinged and has an expertization mark on back. 2023 Scott US$336.80 = $454.68 $10.00
165 Czechoslovakia #B64. Scarce mint Hinged example of the 1 Filler value slate blue Hungarian stamp with "Posta Ceskoslovenska 1919" overprint, with expertization mark on the reverse of the stamp. 2023 Scott US$2200.00 = $2,970.00 $15.00
166 Czechoslovakia #B65/B122. Mint selection of 1919 overprints on Hungarian issues, sold at a premium, with the proceeds to charity. Group of 35 mint Hinged stamps, with Post Office fresh appearance. Includes B65, 67-69, 73-87, 91-94, 98-101, 115-122. The catalogue value does not represent how seldom we see these issues. 2023 Scott US$254.80 = $343.98 $10.00
167 Czechoslovakia #C1-C9, E1-E3a. Early mint Hinged selection of Airmail and Special Delivery issues, including a basic set of the first nine airmails (including both perforated and imperforate) and both printings of the special delivery stamps (different papers). A fresh, nicely centered group of stamps. 2023 Scott US$334.00 = $450.90 $10.00
168 Czechoslovakia - Collector’s duplicates or dealer’s stock. This old time green covered 32-page UniSafe brand stockbook holds an extensive mint and used stock mostly 1919-1965, including "back of the book" (#C1-C3 used). The mint is a mix of Hinged and Never Hinged, with some minor duplication (limited to about 4 copies of a stamp). Very fresh, very clean (with only a few obvious faults) moderately organized. Over 1500 stamps in total. Perfect for building or expanding a collection. Ignore the previous owner’s catalogue values, as they were done about 40 years ago! Estimate = $160.00 $15.00
169 Czechoslovakia - Legion Post Siberia #1-14. After the Great War, many of the combatants felt the need to battle again in Siberia, as a trial intervention to reverse the Russian Revolution. Czechoslovakia sent a contingency and issued a small number of stamps for use by the troops. Not surprisingly, most of these aren’t known postally used. These 17 mint Hinged stamps are a complete listing, as per Scott (there were some trial forerunners), including both perforations on the "commemorative" set. Tough to find, and in above average condition. 2023 Scott US$420.50 = $567.68 $10.00
170 Czechoslovakia / Czech Republic #2763/3047. Two cut-down mint sheet files house this very complete run of mini-sheets and sheetlets issued between 1989-1998. Includes many from the long standing "Art" series and bridges the transition to the Czech Republic. The mint are Never Hinged and there are three series where there is both mint and used (#2858, 2867-2869, 2872-2874). Not often seen material. 2023 Scott US$676.50 = $913.28 $10.00
171 Denmark #2/731 plus BOB. The affinity that this collector has for Danish material, especially in the classic era, is evident throughout this labour of love. Includes clear readable cancels on the earlier material, with individual items having catalogue values up to $75.00 each. We noted that many were selected for cancels, different printings, and supplemented with multiples. Some items may need you to break out your specialized Facit catalogue to appreciate the nuances. The collection runs up to about 1980, with some semi-postals, postage dues and airmails (including nice examples of C2 & C3). The collection then continues with more interesting postmarks and 35 covers and postal stationery (including some local-post stationery). Concluding with some cinderellas and revenues, followed by an attractive grouping of Danish West Indies. About 1500 stamps here, with huge eye appeal. Estimate = $350.00 $42.00
172 Denmark #7/1259 plus Back of the Book. Mint and (mostly) used stock of over 800 duplicated 1858 to 2003 period issues, all laid out, organized and identified in one 32 white page stockbook. The overall quality is quite nice with a very decent representation of 1930s and more recent material. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the range and quality of the lot. Estimate = $200.00 $26.00
173 Denmark #7/421. Mounted collection on quadrilled pages from 1863 to 1965, starts with a few better #7, 11, 68, 325 (mint). Primarily used up to 1940, and then a mix of mint and used afterwards. Includes a bit of back of the book. Generally clean, with some faults to be expected in the earlier issues. About 350 stamps. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
174 Finland #9c on cover. 1874 "shovel shaped" serpentine roulettes on damaged 1875 envelope produced by the Wasnius Library in Helsinki tied with a two-ring blue ink "Finska Aernvkoen" cancel. While the envelope has seen better days (the yellow is the colour of the lining), the stamp is better than normally seen for these issues, as the roulettes are so fragile. Facit catalogues this stamp on cover at SEK15,000 (about $1900.00 CDN). 2023 Scott (for the stamp only) US$1,000.00 = $1,350.00 $12.00
175 Finland #28/1120. Mint and (mostly) used stock of over 500 duplicated 1881 to 2000 period issues, all laid out, organized and identified in one 32 white page stockbook. The overall quality is quite nice with a very decent balance of older and more recent issues. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the range and quality of the lot. Estimate = $250.00 $13.00
176 France #1, 13/2355, B1/B566, C5/C49 plus more. Mostly used duplicated stock of 1851-1994 period issues (plus a few more recent), all neatly organized, laid out and identified in three blue Uni-Safe stock books. Over 1,600 stamps in total, with useful quantities of material covering all time periods. Of particular note in this lot is a pair of #1 (10c bistre Ceres) on an 1851 folded soldier's letter. The perfect lot for the France specialist. Estimate = $400.00 $80.00
177 France #168 Precancelled / Y & T #PR56a. Select quality Very Fine Never Hinged block of four of the 25c blue "Sower" definitive, each stamp with post office applied "AFFRANCHts" precancel. Identified and valued by the owner using Yvert & Tellier catalogue. Owner's total Y & T catalogue 364 euros = $534.00 $12.00
178 France #263/296, B11/B155. Very Fine mint Hinged/Never Hinged group of better 1919 to 1943 issue singles and sets, including regular and semi-postal material. All laid out, on one Hagner stock sheet, identified and valued by the owner using Yvert & Tellier catalogue. Valued by us using the more conservative Scott catalogue. A very useful offering. 2024 Scott US$532.00 = $718.20 $60.00
179 France #329, B274a Complete Booklet. Two key mid-20th century issues in Very Fine used condition consisting of: the 1937 "PEXIP" souvenir sheet with a June 25th '37 show cancel; and a 1952 issue Red Cross Semi-postal 15fr+5fr booklet pane of 10 (with cover) with "METZ 13/12/1952" commemorative First Day Cancel. Both of these pieces are very hard to find in high quality used condition. The owner realistically states 1,050.00 euros (=$1,555.00 CAD) catalogue value in Yvert & Tellier. Conservatively valued by Scott. 2024 Scott US$675.00 = $911.25 $42.00
180 France #348, B27, B28, C16-C17, C29-C32. CDS used group of better 1928 to 1954 issue singles and sets, including regular (#348, the 1938 50fr "Ader"), semi-postal (#B27, the 1928 "Industry & Agriculture" and #B34, the 1930 "Smile of Reims") and airmails (#C16-C17, the 1936 "Trans-Atlantic" set and #C29-C32, the 1954 "French Aircraft" set). All laid out, on one Hagner stock sheet, identified and valued by the consignor using Yvert & Tellier. 2024 Scott US$457.75 = $617.30 $42.00
181 France #C22, C23-C27, C30, C32, C35, C36. Very Fine mint Hinged/Never Hinged selection of 10 different 1947 to 1959 airmail issues. All complete sets or high values. The owner has identified and valued them using Yvert & Tellier catalogue in euros but valued here using Scott catalogue. 2024 Scott US$427.70 = $577.40 $42.00
182 France - Balance of Consignment. Clean and eclectic range of modernish material, including "Marianne de Muller" and "Marianne de Luquet" booklet panes, 1971 & 1990 "Charles de Gaulle" commemorative souvenir folders, "float plane" and "letter" commemorative panes, plus full folded mint sheets of two different Reunion overprints. Identified and valued by the owner using Yvert & Tellier catalogue. Owner's total Y & T catalogue 635 euros= $932.00 $13.00
183 France - Mint accumulation of regular issues and semi-postals, including a number of the good 1930’s commemoratives (e.g. Vimy) and post-war semi-postals. About 700 stamps, very fresh appearance, most appear to be lightly hinged, with only a touch of duplication. All in a charming, green covered, medium sized 30-page stockbook (black pages) with acetate strips and page separators (needs a bit of binding repair). The catalogue value on this lot will add up quickly. Estimate = $150.00 $14.00
184 France and Colonies #12/1195 plus Semi-postals. Mounted collection on quadrilled pages in a black "Borek" springback album, plus a few loose pages and a black stockcard from another 19th century collection and a small wholesale lot of mint St. Pierre and Miquelon. The album starts with the Peace and Commerce issue and runs to 1967, starting off mostly used, before gradually transitioning to mint (and later Never Hinged). The material is mostly lower value, with individual stamps up to $10.00 catalogue value, with the most appeal being with the semi-postals (although we did note a mint copy of #C36). This collection of 1020 stamps is supplemented with an older grouping of Napoleon and Bordeaux issues, with a couple of Obock/Djibouti/Somalia overprints and a card with Alsace and Lorraine official imitations, including some attractive multiples. The lot concludes with St. Pierre & Miquelon, with panes of 3/4 of the 1962 bird issue and a range of mint blocks and singles with up to 20 copies of a type, such as #98/103 and #C47/C76. The SPM catalogues about US$300.00 alone. Estimate = $220.00 $11.00
185 France and Colonies - Complete sheets of Vichy-era semi-postal stamps produced in Paris, but never distributed to the colonies (World War II made this impractical). Only known mint, and listed begrudgingly in Scott, these are nonetheless very attractive sheets with interesting overprints and great lathework in the margins. There are 32 different sheets in this lot, all appear to be unfolded, mint and Never Hinged. Expect a little gum aging and a bit of perf separation, but great for display, or to break up for resale. Includes issues for Martinique, Cameroon, New Caledonia, Equatorial Africa, Reunion, Togo, Madagascar, Guiana, Wallis & Futuna, Somalia, Sudan, Inini and Ivory Coast. Along with the sheets are a few large blocks or half sheets of a few airmail issues from a couple of these same countries previously listed. All in a mint sheet file. Estimate = $180.00 $10.00
186 France Offices in Turkey (Levant) - Cavalle #1/15. A near complete run of overprints and revalues from Cavalle, now part of Greece. This region has changed hands several times over the past century, but for this brief incarnation, it was under French administration and issued two sets of stamps. Included in this lot are 18 mint and used stamps which include die types and shades. The mint are generally heavily Hinged and the two high denominations (#14-15) are mint no gum. Most of the value here is in the Peace and Commerce overprints. Not often seen material. 2023 Scott US$610.50 = $824.18 $32.00
187 German States - Fantastic mounted collection, which covers almost every state and some territories. Over 1250 mint and used stamps, supplemented with a few covers. Includes Baden, Bavaria, Bremen, Brunswick, Danzig, Hamburg, Memel, Prussia, Schleswig (and with Holstein), Saar, Wurttemberg. This lot includes fantastic postmarks, interesting printings, labels and non-Scott listed items which add to its appeal. However, you do have to keep your eyes peeled, as some of these interesting items include reprints, forgeries or higher value with condition issues. Estimate = $350.00 $22.00
188 Germany - Blue Lighthouse "alligator" finish springback album overfilled with 1983-1948 hingeless pages. That isn’t a typo. At some point, something happened with this collection and the pages were mounted in reverse chronological order, maybe it was when the semi-postal pages were integrated into the collection. For what it’s worth, the pages that are here are quite complete, the stamps mostly used for the Post-WWII period and then a good run of mint. Many of the pages have a glassine envelope in the fold with used stamps that match the stamps on the pages. Several hundred stamps here, with some additional material included such as B594/B778 and a number of complete used sets on black stockpages (catalogue over US$100.00 alone on these extra pages). Album and pages retail over $600.00! A truly "bulging" group, so pages could benefit being split with another binder. Estimate = $220.00 $22.00
189 Germany - Masses of post-war marks. A pile of mint sheets, part sheets, blocks and strips of a number of issues that came out immediately after the Second World War, including some Bundesrepublic issues, American Military Government, Leipzig Fair, as well as some odds n’ ends tucked in between, like what appears to be an original sleeve for a ream of sheets. Many different denominations, some have attractive printing in the selvedge. Most have some kind of interleaving between, so there isn’t much gum damage. A number of the sheets have minor edge damage due to the different sized sheets being poorly stored. Offered as received. Estimate = $120.00 $32.00
190 Germany - Massive mint and used collector's accumulation. A double-height pizza box absolutely stuffed with glassines / envelopes of both mint and used material. While there is not much "early" material, the groups start to get much larger in the 1920's inflation period, then with good showings of WWII / Post WWII era including 3rd Reich, AM Post, "Posthorn" etc. The strongest showings are of Germany / DDR in the 1960's and 1970's with a massive amount of mint Never Hinged material including blocks / multiples (often just as received from the Post Office). While a bit hard to picture (as it the nature of packets / envelopes), there are MANY thousands of stamps here, just waiting to be sorted out. Well worth the very conservative estimate. Estimate = $200.00 $50.00
191 Germany - Occupation / 3rd Reich Postmark collection. An assembly of 250 stamps or pieces, put together by a collector to show a variety of the postmarks / usages during the 3rd Reich period or various occupations. Noted usages in Latvia, Estonia, Saar, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland and Memel. The postmark material includes an interesting study of period postmarks, including many illustrated cancels, popular for their pro-3rd Reich propaganda skewed themes. All neatly arranged on 5 double-sided stocksheets. Estimate = $150.00 $22.00
192 Germany - Bavaria - Three album pages and 10 black presentation cards with early Bavarian material, including the first issues, the coat of arms, a couple of postage dues and some postal stationery cut squares. The album pages are the last of a German States collection that we have been breaking up. The condition of this section is very mixed (including some outright space fillers) and many will require soaking to get them cleaned up. There is some potentially high catalogue value here, for example the used copy of #1, (sadly, with the bite out of the corner), catalogues $2,250.00. Complementing these pages is an overwhelmingly used dealer/wholesale lot with over 100 stamps from the "Coat of Arms" issue. Many have notes on the back of the card to aid with identification. These are in much better condition. Estimate = $200.00 $22.00
193 Germany - Berlin - Post-war mounted collection including some overprints, a good range of various mint and used "Bells", before it settles into a mix of mint and (mostly) used, with the occasional souvenir sheet, finishing off with a good run of used semi-postals issues. There are some non-Berlin "bonus" material which is included with a smattering of offices in China, Morocco, Turkey, Cameroon, South-West Africa and a set of post-WWI Samoa overprints on NZ stamps on a registered cover. The lot concludes with some post-WWII Allied Military Government, Wurttemberg, Rhineland, Baden, etc. Over 600 stamps in total. Estimate = $150.00 $28.00
194 Germany - DDR #58-67, 78-79, 80-81, 144a, 146a, B17-B20, B21a, B35a. All mint selection of early DDR sets and souvenir sheets, including the 1950 Academy of Science set of 10, the Leipzig Fair set of 2, President of Poland Visit set of 2 plus semi-postal sets and sheets. The lot is rounded out with the four colourful 1953 issue Karl Marx souvenir sheets of six, both perforated and imperforate. The #58-67 set is Never Hinged but the balance of the sets and the six souvenir sheets are mint Hinged. Great Marxist/Stalinist early Cold War propaganda issues! 2024 Scott US$428.75= $578.80 $10.00
195 Gibraltar #39/120. All sound and Fine to Very Fine mint Hinged selection of 33 different 1903 to 1946 period issues including sets and better single values. Includes Edward VII, GeoV and GeoVI material. All neatly organized, identified and valued on one Hagner stock sheet. 2024 Scott US$538.75 = $727.30 $42.00
196 Great Britain #1. Plates #1a, 2, 5 and 7. Fine used examples of four different plates (#1a, 2, 5 and 7) of the 1840 issue Penny Black. Apart from the odd light bend, a sound quartet. 2023 Scott Classic US$1,725.00 = $2,328.75 $160.00
197 Great Britain #1. Plates #9 and 10. Fine appearing used examples of the rare plate #9 and plate #10 printings of the 1840 issue Penny Black. Both with small faults (plate #9 has a small thin, plate #10 has a horizontal crease). Hard to find in any condition! 2023 Scott Classic US$1,825.00 = $2,463.75 $65.00
198 Great Britain #1/126. Victorian delight! A single black stockpage that includes the first four issues imperforate, with the Penny Black being a 4-margin example. Includes the 1p and 2p perforated, a nice "wing margin" copy of #45, an off-center copy of #57 (5/- rose with Maltese cross watermark), and several $100-$700 catalogue value stamps up to the Jubilee issue (one with a perfin). Despite the great appearance, some have the usual condition issues often found on these issues. Still lots of value here. Total 2023 Scott US$6473.35 = $8,739.02 $210.00
199 Great Britain #1/4. Choice used Penny Black, with 4 large to giant margins, used with a light SON red Maltese Cross cancel. Unplated, but from position "P-B". A beautiful example of the world’ first postage stamp. As an enticement, her blue paper sisters, both three margin copies of used examples of #3 and #4 are included. 2023 Scott US$497.50 = $671.63 $80.00
200 Great Britain #1/714 Stock in Two Volumes. Mint and used duplicated stock of over 1,000 stamps, 1840 to 1973 period issues. In the earlier material of note are seven used mixed condition "Penny Blacks" and three used"Two Penny Blues". A bit thin in the mid-1800s, the material becomes more comprehensive in the later 1800s and more recent period. All neatly laid out, organized and identified in two Unisafe stock books. A great lot for the specialized GB collector, eBay or show dealer. Huge total catalogue value. Estimate = $750.00 $80.00
201 Great Britain #3, 4. All used selection of the 1841 issue imperf Penny Reds and Two Penny Blues. The lot consists of: #3 x 3 singles; #3 strip of three; #3 on cover; #4 x 3 singles; and very scarce #4 block of four. Unchecked for plates and all valued as the most common shades. 2023 Scott Classic US$2,277.50 = $3,074.65 $120.00
202 Great Britain #3/179. Victorian Great Britain cancel accumulation. The grouping starts with a number of #3s with readable 3-digit killers and some black Maltese cancels, followed by an example of #69 (rounded corner, catalogues $500.00) with a "newspaper branch" cancel. There are a couple of pages of QV Jubilee/KEVII with readable cancels and the lot finishes with a small group of 1/2d #125 lower right corner pairs with selvedge. Both the catalogue value and the eye appeal will add up quickly here. Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
203 Great Britain #3/78 Postal History. Group of 19 Victorian covers, folded letter sheets and a postal stationery card (+2 pieces). In not particular order, there are 7 imperforate Penny Red franking items (one with a pair), a mis-perforated copy of #8 on a clean 1854 envelope, several covers bearing #33 (most with the plate numbers identified) and a pair of folded letters used to confirm numbers for a church registry (using 1/2d #78). While some faults are to be expected, the condition is decent. Who knows what some research might turn up when delving into the contents here! Estimate = $150.00 $46.00
204 Great Britain #22/28. Clean used selection of the 1855-1856 first surface printed issues, all laid out on one Hagner brand stock sheet. The group consists of #22, #24, #26 (x 4), #27 (x 2), #27a, and #28. Expect an odd small fault or two but in general a sound and Fine or better offering. 2024 Scott US$2,705.00 = $3,651.75 $19.00
205 Great Britain #27/523 plus Back of the Book. A pre-decimal mounted collection. Good Victorian era material, with individual catalogue values up to $250.00 per stamp, including some nice wing margin copies and a number with readable cancels. The Edwardian section is respectable followed by two Seahorses, the collection picks up steam again in the early Elizabethan issues, which are now predominantly mint and includes phosphors, graphite lines and some postage dues with potential. About 350 stamps in total. The catalogue would add up quickly and easily come out to a few thousand dollars. Estimate = $220.00 $22.00
206 Great Britain #28/134. A tale of two notebooks. The first is a child’s scribbler probably from the 1960’s with about 220 used stamps from the Victorian-Edwardian period, including better, such as #28 x4 (catalogue $300.00 each), along with better issues throughout, including many different plate numbers and some cancel potential. Duplication in the Jubilee and KEVII issues, including some shade potential (the prices, mostly in pennies, are from another era!). Unfortunately, the stamps were heavily hinged to the pages, and some possibly even glued in place. So, despite there being a few thousand dollars in catalogue value here, the successful bidder may be advised to soak them all off. If that doesn’t "float your boat" the second "notebook" is a plate reconstruction booklet for #33, with 112 used and 1 mint copy all in their appropriate sheet location. The conditioning and hinging of these stamps are better. Estimate = $200.00 $24.00
207 Great Britain #29/32, 61. Clean used selection of mostly the 1858-1870 line engraved Two Penny issues, all laid out on one Hagner brand stock sheet.

208 Great Britain #33 Plate Number 86 Complete Plating. Complete used run of all the plate positions (AA/LT) of the 1864 issue perforated "Penny Red".

209 Great Britain #33 Plate Number Collection. Nearly complete (missing only plate #77) used run of all the plate numbers of the 1864 issue perforated "Penny Red", plate #71 up to and including plate #225 (slightly clipped perfs).

210 Great Britain #34/48 Including Plates. Used and used on piece selection of 21 lightly duplicated 1862 to 1865 surface printed issues, all identified by the consignor and laid out on three Hagner stock sheets. Note a nice range of plates and shades. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the range of different catalogue numbers and plates as well as to evaluate condition. Expect the odd fault but in general sound and Fine or better. 2024 Scott US$4,582.50.00 = $6,186.35 $36.00

213 Great Britain #50/55. All used selection of nine 1867 to 1880 period issues, all different for catalogue or plate number. Expect the odd short perf or trimmed wing margin, otherwise a sound and relatively comprehensive group. 2024 Scott US$1,735.00 = $2,342.25 $14.00
214 Great Britain #57, 57a. Used examples of both the rose and pale rose shades (both plate #1) of the 1867 issue 5sh large format Queen Victoria, watermark 26 (Maltese Cross).

215 Great Britain #58 Plates. Clean used selection of almost all the plates of the 1870 issue ½p "Bantam". All identified by the consignor but a quick peek confirmed their assessments. A good number of the stamps have very light cancels (possibly some are unused) and all have been valued as used. Take a good look at the the scan to see for yourself! 2024 Scott US$1,055.00 = $1,424.25 $19.00

221 Great Britain #127/145. Edward VII used selection of 17 stamps to the 5/-, with some very nice light postmarks (including nice postmarks on two higher values). From a simplified collection, unchecked for shades. Overall condition is decent and although the 1/- was used, it has no distinct cancel and was uncounted in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$714.10 = $964.04 $19.00
222 Great Britain #127-139, 143, 144-145. Unusually fresh and Very Fine mint Hinged group of 1902 to 1911 Edward VII issues, running from the original ½p up to and including the 2sh6p value plus the later additional ½p, 4p and 7p values. 2024 Scott US$1,078.25 = $1,455.65 $10.00
223 Great Britain #292/801 plus Back of the Book and Regionals. Early QEII hingeless pages covering 1952-1976 in a snazzy looking red Lindner 18-ring binder with matching slipcase. Very complete (probably needing only a couple of dozen stamps to be complete) mostly mint, Never Hinged, with a bit of used material scattered throughout, but not many blank spaces. Lots of Wildings and noted some graphite lines and phosphors, although a bit light on postage dues (but there are some). This collection bridges the transition to the decimal issue, including regional issues. About 600 stamps. The album is in excellent condition, and retails for over $250.00. Estimate = $160.00 $10.00
224 Great Britain #BK11. The seldom seen 2/- blue complete booklet mint NH, includes panes #187b, 188b, 189c and 189d. Quite clean given its age, fully intact, no creases nor bent corners. A gem for any GB or booklet collector. 2024 Scott US$1000.00 = $1,350.00 $80.00
225 Great Britain #J1/J103. Postage due accumulation on pages, stockcards, glassine envelopes and a presentation folder compiled from a half-dozen sources. Includes mint and used ranging over 70 years with strength in the earlier. Many are notated, but unchecked by us for accuracy, but we did see some obviously better issues, including high values. There will be some overlap, leading to a moderate amount of duplication and some unrelated "back of the book" material that is just "along for the ride". Over 200 stamps. Estimate = $140.00 $16.00
226 Great Britain #U2. Mint condition 1840 issue 2p blue "Mulready" envelope (stereo a95). Fresh and intact, a couple of minor paper irregularities noted for the record, still a superior quality example of the world's first pre-paid 2p postal stationery envelope. 2024 Scott US$500.00 = $675.00 $70.00
227 Great Britain - Accumulation in a small stockbook. This little stockbook has successfully protected these stamps for about 50 years, but it didn’t magically organize them. The first four pages are a mix of various "penny red" printings, with about half being #33. We noted an uneven block of 6 of #16 (it should be mentioned that there is no indication that any plating study has been done). The book jumps ahead to Great War-era GeoV issues and 8 Seahorses. We then whipsaw back to the QV Jubilee issue (noted six copies of the 4 1/2d, catalogue $45.00 each). The Edward VII includes value to the 10d, finally finishing with the GeoVI issues. About 350 stamps in total. Enormous catalogue value. Unchecked for plates, perfs, shades. Estimate = $150.00 $22.00
228 Great Britain - All Mint Mostly Decimal Collection in Two Volumes. All QEII period and mint Never Hinged 1952-1991 period collection of several hundred stamps, almost all commemorative decimal currency issues, all housed in a Very Fine condition two-volume springback Stanley Gibbons "Windsor" album set with pages from 1840 up to 1991. The retail value of the empty albums when new was over $200.00. The Never Hinged stamps are all housed in clear plastic mounts. Noted a decent amount of total face value in useable postage. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
229 Great Britain - Booklets, presentation packs and mint sets and singles. A bit of an odd grouping that starts with three complete booklets from the early 1950’s, transitioning to a smattering of 1970s-1990s Machin booklets and finally moving to 6 "Prestige" booklets. There are about 11 pages of mint (appearing to be Never Hinged) commemoratives issued between 1960-1980 and 6x 1980’s presentation packs (+ one for the Concorde issue). The lot ends with a flourish as there is a corner block of the £10 Britannia and some Machin/Castle pairs (total face value over £50.00). Overall, the condition looks excellent. Estimate = $150.00 $11.00
230 Great Britain - Channel Islands - Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney and Isle of Man. A collector's accumulation of mint Never Hinged "new issues" as received 1994-2011 from a standing Post Office order.

Most packets have the original Post Office receipt still enclosed and although at least a dozen packages are missing the receipt, the receipts present add up to £314.12 ($536.50 CDN). Estimate = $250.00 $55.00

232 Great Britain - First Day Cover Stash. A visually pleasing selection of 135 GPO produced First Day Covers from the 1996-2004 period, all with typewritten address sent to Calgary, Alberta. Many better stamps here, including Millenium issues, "Smilers" and QEII multiple value panes. The catalogue value of the used stamps alone would add up to a significant total. Accompanying most covers is the Post Office info card, with a wealth of information on the stamp(s) featured. Estimated at less than $1.00 per cover. Estimate = $120.00 $10.00
233 Great Britain - First UK Aerial Post Card and Envelope Duo. The GeoV Coronation commemorative 1911 First UK aerial post card and envelope duo. Specially cacheted and postmarked Sept 9th postcard with half pence KGV definitive affixed and a Sept 9th envelope, 1p rate. A great "first of the first flights" lot. Estimate = $150.00 $100.00

The vast majority of the stamp issues in the collection consist of both singles on cover and full sets on one cover (usually 5 or 6 covers per issue). Accompanying cards with in-depth details regarding the subjects, stamp designers and cachet artists. All are housed in special albums, four albums containing covers plus one additional unused album.

Mint and used 1870-1987 period collection of several hundred stamps, including definitive, commemorative, Christmas, regional and postage due issues, all housed in a Very Fine condition single volume Stanley Gibbons album with pages from 1840 up to 1987. The retail value of the empty album when new was over $130.00. The Never Hinged stamps are all housed in black plastic mounts. Noted a decent amount of total face value in useable postage. Estimate = $230.00 $10.00
236 Great Britain - Modern selection of 122 different 2016-2023 used issues. This recent material is very difficult to find used since almost all postal mail received these days is without affixed "stamp" postage. We noted that 59 of these are £ 'pound' values. 2024 Scott US$286.00 = $386.10 $80.00
237 Great Britain - Near new, classy, blue padded Lindner 18-ring binder in matching slipcase, with hingeless pages from 1952-1974. Up to the mid-1960’s, there is a scattering of used stamps, and later on there is good coverage of mint commemoratives. Retail for the album alone is over $250.00. A small group of Stanley Gibbons pages with mint issues (both hinged and never hinged) for much of this same period is also included, in case you want to take full advantage of the "hingeless" part of the album. These SG pages probably have a couple hundred dollars of catalogue value alone. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
238 Great Britain - Offices and Agencies Collection. Mint and used collection of 379 different stamps and one cover, all neatly laid out, organized and identified in a high-quality black page stock book.

Clean collection of 169 almost all different British Post Office produced Presentation Packs, 1969 to 1991 period, all housed in high quality (and expensive) "Royal Mail Presentation Packs" albums (sold by the British post office). Loaded with complete commemorative sets of four or five stamps, the total catalogue value, either by Stanley Gibbons (as Presentation packs) or Scott (as sets of mint Never Hinged stamps) is significant, as is the total useable face value. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00
240 Great Britain - Three Volume Royal Mail First Day Cover Collection. Clean collection of 169 almost all different of British Post Office cacheted First Day and Special Event Covers, 1966 to 1989 period, all housed in high quality (and expensive) "Royal Mail First Day Covers" albums (sold by the British post office). Loaded with complete commemorative sets of four or five stamps, the total catalogue value, either by Stanley Gibbons (as FDCs) or Scott (as sets of used stamps) is significant.

241 Great Britain - Offices Abroad - High-end 32-page green padded stockbook with black pages and acetate strips houses an equally impressive collection of mostly mint overprinted stamps for use in British territories. About 200 stamps, includes Bahrain, Morocco (three currencies), Kuwait, Oman, Tangier, Qatar, MEF, Turkey, BMA Somalia, East Africa and even Batum. Very fresh, overall, most are Hinged. Many identified by a previous owner. 2023 Scott US$596.55 = $808.55 $110.00
242 Iceland #1-7. Mixed condition grouping of 1873 issues. Including #1 (no gum, rounded corner...but catalogues $1,050.00), #2 (mint, tone spot, hinge remnant, $175.00), #3-#7 are all used, and all faulty, and would catalogue $7300.00! However, Scott footnotes read "False and favor cancellations are often found on #1-7. Values are considerably less". Facet prices post-period favour cancels at 10-30% of their regular catalogue values. Regardless, given the condition of the stamps, we are only counting the catalogue value of the first two stamps in this lot, and the others can act as attractive space fillers until something better comes along. 2023 Scott US$1,225.00 = $1,653.75 $15.00
243 Iceland #8. The Five aur blue key-value of the 1876 issue, this mint with no gum example has the usual ragged 12-1/2 perforations. Fresh, attractive and seldom seen. 2023 Scott US$475.00 = $641.25 $0.00
244 Iceland #8/959. Mint and (mostly) used stock of over 600 duplicated 1876 to 2001 period issues, all laid out, organized and identified in one 32 black page stock book. The overall quality is quite nice with a very decent balance of older and more recent issues. No pesky "TOLLUR" postmarks in the mix! Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the range and quality of the lot. Estimate = $325.00 $16.00
245 Iceland #10/14. Sextet from the 1876 issue, including both shades of the 20 aur values, with the darker shade being the only mint value in this set (the rest are cleanly cancelled). Condition is better than normally seen from this era, with only the occasional minor perf fault. 2023 Scott US$875.50 = $1,181.93 $12.00
246 Iceland #15/18. Mixed mint and used set of the 1882-1898 issue, includes two shades of the 20a. The lower denominations are all nicely cancelled (one of the 20a could benefit from a soaking). There two high values are mint, the 50a Heavily Hinged, the 100a Lightly Hinged. All are remarkably fresh for being 130 years old. 2023 Scott US$596.50 = $805.28 $10.00
247 Iceland #21/29. A near-complete representation of the last coat of arms set, includes both the large and small "3", and two shades of the 20a denomination. The middle four values are mint Hinged and the lower and higher values are used, with a couple with very attractive cancels. One of the 20a has some chipping to a few of the perforations, otherwise condition is quite good. 2023 Scott US$302.50 = $408.38 $10.00
248 Iceland #34/67. Christian IX and "1 Gildi" overprinted issues on 28 mint and used stamps. The Christian IX set is missing only the high value. The overprints include both colours, the 16a value has both a mint and used example and the 50a includes both perforations (#67 used catalogues $140.00). A fresh looking group. 2023 Scott US$421.70 = $569.30 CDN @1.35 $569.30 $10.00
249 Iceland #71/104. Attractive page of "Two Kings", Jon Sigurdsson and Frederik VIII sets. Selection of 26 mostly used stamps, includes the Christian IX & Frederik VIII set to the 2Kr, missing only the 5kr (the 40a, 1kr, 2kr and the 10a with the perforation change are the only mint stamps in this lot). The Sigurdsson set is complete and the Frederik VIII set is only missing the top two values. A couple of minor perf faults are visible, otherwise the material is in good condition. 2023 Scott US$417.15 = $563.15 $12.00
250 Iceland #108/150. Complete used Christian X set along with an impressive range of revalued issues all from the 1920’s. Very nice appearance, most are used, with #128, 137, 143, 150 being revenue cancels, and #130, 131, 134 and 149 being mint Hinged. Total 2023 Scott US$535.75 = $723.26 $12.00

There are nice groups of used blocks of the Christian X issues, both the regular and official issues and a block of #O69 used. Perhaps the easiest way to add a whole bunch of eye appeal to your collection. 2023 Scott US$919.90 = $1,241.87 $10.00
252 Iceland #141. Used example of the Frederik VIII 1Kr yellow overprinted "Kr.10" in 1924. Strong colour and a nice corner CDS cancel. Stamp with typical centering and in decent condition. A key 20th century revalue. 2023 Scott US$600.00 = $810.00 $12.00
253 Iceland #144/239, B1-B4, C1/C18. Attractive page of 1930’s commemoratives, semi-postals and airmails. The 1925 scenery, Golden Falls, First Geyser and Sturluson set are all postally used. The mint includes a few lower denominations from the 1930 Parliament, 1938 University and semi-postal sets. The World’s Fair sets are a mix of mint and used, including #215-216 used and #232-234 used and #235 mint. The airmail includes C1-C3 mint, C15-C18 used and #30a (1931 Zeppelin overprint) mint.

Includes better values up to $10.00 catalogue value, such as #277, 294, with most of the Europa common design issues and a bit of back of the book. The Scott catalogue value for the stamps is over US$200.00, and the retail value of the album is over $200.00. Estimated value = $130.00 $12.00
255 Iceland #C1/C31. Very complete mint Hinged airmail selection including overprints, the 1930 airplanes over iconic scenes and the 1931 Zeppelin overprints. Complete, missing only the scarce Balboa overprints and C29. The C19 has some album offset on the reverse of the stamp, so was not counted in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$464.10 = $626.54 $14.00
256 Iceland #O4/O68. Assorted official issues on a black stockpage, with a combination of both mint and used, with examples of both perforations of the 19th century "Coat of Arms" issue (both regular and revalued). The Christian IX set is complete, as is the "Two Kings" issue. The Christian X set is just missing the 3a denomination. A grand total of 43 stamps that are fresh and generally in excellent condition with the exception of O4 (no gum) and the good shade of O6a (thin), both not included in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$517.55 = $698.69 $11.00

Official overprints on regular issue stamps, includes 10 values from the 1930 Parliament issue (two are postally used), both of the 1922 overprints, with #O51 being cleanly used. The example of #O69 has a nice corner cancel, as does "Air Post" official CO1 with the Gyrafalcon (missing from most bird topical collections). Some of the mint is a bit Heavily Hinged, as often found on this material. The 15a value (#O57) of the parliament issue is thinned and not counted in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$657.05 = $887.02 $11.00
258 India, Indian States and Burma - A bundle of better leftovers. Includes the end of the material from renowned collector Geoff Flack’s estate, including items priced for sale on eBay 25 years ago (about US$700.00 asking price). PLUS there are album pages, glassines and dealer cards with some yet-to-be-tamed chaos that includes overprints, reprints, officials/service and great cancels. There is even a small batch of mint and used telegraph forms! You won’t be disappointed with this lot. Estimate = $200.00 $70.00
259 Iran #1831/2036, C91-C96, O87-O99. Small holding of late 1970’s mint Never Hinged issues with little sign of the toning that these issues are notorious for attracting. Includes #1831-41 (8 sets), #1924-1940 (2 sets), #2027-2036 (6 sets), C91-C96 (8 sets), O87-O99 (4 sets). Not often seen material from the end of the Shah era.

Afterwards comes the first Irish definitive set and various commemorative issues through the 1930’s, finishing with a Never Hinged set of the last St Patrick set. Overall condition is pretty decent. A great lot for the Irish specialist, or the collector looking to become one! Estimate = $140.00 $16.00
261 Israel - Collection from 1948 to 1984 in Two Schaubek Albums. Mostly mint Never Hinged and "tabbed" collection of hundreds of stamps and souvenir sheets, mostly housed in two Hingeless printed Schaubek albums with pages from 1948 up to 1980. Spotty in the earlies, the mint tabbed issues begin in the early 1950s and become more and more comprehensive from 1953 on, then not missing much from 1955 to 1980. There are also some unmounted mint Never Hinged "new issue" tabbed stamps and souvenir sheets from the early 1980s noted in the lot. Excellent basis for expansion, with most of the more common but still necessary issues taken care of. Estimate = $180.00 $22.00
262 Israel - Collection on Computer Generated Pages. Mint and used collection of 1,460 almost all different stamps, 1948 to 2008 period, all neatly mounted on computer generated album pages that go up to 2009. The earlier material is mostly used and without tabs but the more recent (1965 and up) tends to be mint with tab. A great starter collection with some very complete areas. Owner's accurate 2018 Scott US$775.60 = $1,047.05 $11.00
263 Italy #22/434. Small old, mounted collection of classic Italy from the earliest days into the start of WWII. As always, bring your critical eye to check out the King Victor Emmanuel issues. Notable better include most of the Parcel post surcharges #58/62, the Proclamation of the Empire set (used, #400-409) and the first semi-postal set B1-B3 used. Last catalogued in the 1980’s (some of the Scott catalogue numbers no longer track, but you can smile at some of the catalogue prices). Estimate = $120.00 $10.00
264 Italy #47. The 20c orange King Humbert I issue of 1879, mint (appearing to be Never Hinged), but with some minor gum disturbance. Centred a bit low and to the left, with a couple of slightly shorter perforations mentioned "for the record". That being said, a fresh appearance for a stamp approaching 150 years of age. 2023 Scott US$425.00 = $573.75 $20.00
265 Italy #66. The 1890 issued 20c overprint on 50c (1879 issue) King Humbert. Mint original gum Hinged, with a bit of its acidic gum missing. Perforations are in good shape, and the design is shifted a bit low (not that there is much room for this stamp to move with the design so close to the perforations). A key 19th century Italian "revalue". 2023 Scott US$500.00 = $675.00 $20.00
266 Italy #67, 72. Pair of key values from the 1891 definitive issue. The 5c green coat of arms is mint, with cracked acidic gum (many be Never Hinged, but has a bit of gum loss down one side) and a five point star collector or expertization mark. The 5-lira design has a light cancel and has a few trimmed perforations but still a decent example for this period. 2023 Scott US$730.00 = $985.50 $20.00
267 Italy #143-146. Used set of the "300th Anniversary of the Propagation of the Faith", issued in 1923. Notoriously sold to philatelic speculators, very few saw actual postal use. This is a nicely used set, but Scott warns "forged cancellations exist", so offered "as is". 2023 Scott US$700.00 = $945.00 $10.00
268 Italy #165-168. Used examples of the four "low values" of the Manzoni 500th anniversary issue of 1923, each with a light CDS cancel. The usual centering issues as often seen on these issues, but decent perforations. 2023 Scott US$720.00 = $972.00 $10.00
269 Italy #290-305, C40-C41. The complete used regular issue set to the 5L + 2.50L, plus the matching airmail set of the 10th Anniversary of the Fascist Government and the March on Rome. All nicely postally used with CDS cancels. Missing only the two Special Delivery issues. One of the key 1930’s Italian sets. 2023 Scott US$610.70 = $824.45 $32.00
270 Italy #349/354, C79-C83. The centenary of operatic composer Bellini’s passing at only 34 was commemorated in this 11 stamp regular issue and airmail set. Nicely used, most with CDS cancels. A very tough set to find postally used. 2023 Scott US$1022.00 = $1,379.70 $10.00
271 Italy #C30-C33. Nicely used examples of the middle of the Leonardo da Vinci airmail issue of 1932, with the 3 to 10 lira denominations, all nicely cancelled, reasonably centered and with good perforations. An eye-catching group of stamps. 2023 Scott US$627.50 = $847.13 $32.00
272 Italy - Rhodes (Aegean Islands) - Mint complete set of the Royal visit issue of 1929, all with hinge remnants, except the 1.25 Lira dark blue denomination which is used (and not counted in the catalogue value). Fresh appearance, with the better denominations being notably well centered. 2023 Scott US$447.50 = $604.13 $12.00
273 Jamaica #44/135. All mint Hinged lightly duplicated 1905 to 1951 period selection of 34 Queen Victoria, GeoV and GeoVI issues, including complete sets. All laid out on one Hagner brand stock sheet. 2024 Scott US$257.80 = $348.05 $22.00
274 Korea Democratic People's Republic #3/219. Usefully comprehensive and high quality collection of 142 all different 1946 to 1960 period stamps, all Very Fine used (CTO). As usual, the earliest issues are mostly the Scott catalogue listed reprints but most of these catalogue for US$10.00 each or more. Total Scott catalogue will be well over US$1,000.00. Here’s your chance to get a decent number of surprisingly valuable and hard to find North Korean "earlies". Estimate = $325.00 $15.00
275 Leeward Islands #103-115 plus Varieties Specialized Study. Marvellously well mounted and organized in-depth study of the 1938 to 1951 issue GeoVI definitives including the high value key plates. 59 selected quality used stamps in total, from ¼p to £1 values, all laid out and annotated on quadrille album pages for date of issue, perf, paper and shade. All the expensive varieties of the 5sh, 10sh and £1 values are here, identified and described in detail by the collector. Total Scott catalogue value is well over US$1,000.00. If valued by Stanley Gibbons, this lot will be catalogued at an even higher amount. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the quality and attention to detail that this lot represents. Estimate = $325.00 $85.00
276 Lithuania #120-122, 126. Mint examples of the 1922 overprints on the 1919 "White Knight" issue. All mint with typical centering. #120 is Hinged, and the other three are either Heavily Hinged or have significant album adherence, with very little original gum. Still quite presentable examples. 2023 Scott US$600.00 = $810.00 $10.00
277 Malta - Maltese mayhem including two dealer’s wholesale stocks housed in glassine envelopes, filling up a shoebox, going back to Queen Victoria and running until about 1980. This is followed by a small mounted collection covering the same period and the lot is finishes off with 10 sheetlets from five issues from the early 1980’s. Thousands upon thousands of stamps here, most of which haven’t seen the light of day for decades. Estimate = $120.00 $10.00
278 Monaco #1/1765 plus Back of the Book. Mounted Monaco collection that is strong right from the start, with (the original) Charles III #1, 3, 8 mint (catalogues $330.00) and then with some of the key mint values from the Prince Albert I set (#13,17, 24 - catalogues $252.50) jumping ahead to a mint, Never Hinged example of souvenir sheet #159. There is some nice semi-postal, airmail and postage due coverage, with the mounted collection having about 360 stamps up to 1965. This mounted collection is supplemented / complimented by a bundle of cards, which include scattered mint and used issues up to 1991. Of particular note is the 1949 UPU set, including airmails, imperforate and mint Never Hinged (unlisted in Scott, but online retail is over US$75.00). Expect condition to be a bit mixed, but there is lots to work with here. Estimate = $200.00 $26.00
279 Netherlands #461Ac/536f, 610/611a. Wholesale lot of complete booklets from the early 1970’s, in quantities from 2-18 of a type, in which we noted different cover types not listed by Scott.

There is also 9 presentation packs from the PTT for the May 1981 centenary of telephone service, with each pack having a mint and first day cancel on a block of #610 and a mint souvenir sheet #611a. Overall condition is excellent. Total 2023 Scott US$342.15 = $461.90 $0.00
280 Netherlands and Colonies - Collection in Six Volumes. Mint and used collection of many hundreds of stamps, souvenir sheets and booklets panes, all housed on a mix of pages in six 3-ring binders. The oldest Netherlands volume includes used sets of #1 to 3 and #4 to 6 plus a decent range of all types of material including semi-postals, airmails, postage dues and more. The four additional binders of Netherlands go up to the year 2011. The range of material in the volume of Netherlands Colonies covers all areas and eras. While the stamps, sheets and panes are a bit messily mounted, careful inspection will certainly turn up some better items, sometimes hiding in plain sight. Great basis for expansion and study. Estimate = $325.00 $11.00
281 New Britain #38. Fresh and Fine mint Lightly Hinged 80pf lake and black Marshall Islands "Kaiser Yacht" with the 1914 provisional 5mm spacing "G.R.I. 8d." surcharge. A scarce value from issues denoting the WWI end of German colonial aspirations. 2023 Scott Classic US$525.00 = $708.75 $42.00
282 New Zealand #51/996 plus Back of the Book. Mint and (mostly) used stock of over 900 duplicated 1874 to 1990 period issues, all laid out, organized and identified in one 32 white page stock book. The overall quality is quite nice with a very decent balance of older and more recent issues including regular postage, Postal Fiscals, Semi-postals, Postage Dues and more. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the range and quality of the lot. Estimate = $300.00 $16.00
283 New Zealand #191, 215b. Pair of mint lower left plate blocks from the 1935 pictorial definitive issue. Includes the 4d "Mitre Peak" with the comb perf 14, Hinged, Campbell Paterson L7a (NZ$250.00) and the 2/- "Landing of Captain Cook" with line perf 12-1/2, Never Hinged, CP L13f (NZ $400.00). Both plate 1. Great eye appeal and a good addition to any specialized collection of New Zealand. Only catalogued by Campbell Paterson catalogue, not listed is Scott. Total 2021 CP NZ$650.00 = $539.50 $17.00
284 New Zealand - From a Chalon all the way to 2017 with many stops along the way. Another consignment leftover, some obvious highlights being a nice 8d EdwardVII, the GeoV definitives (11 of the 15 denominations mint) and most of the two printings of the 1935. "Back of the book" includes a couple of mint blocks of AR101, a few health souvenir sheets, #C5 and some officials (few from 1935, whole Centennial set etc). There is a bundle of 1970’s presentation folders, some 1980’s stamp and/or first day cover packs and some 1990’s mint souvenir sheets with philatelic exhibition printings. There are a few 45c era complete booklets and even a couple of early 2000s mini-panes. Stiffening this lot is a 1985 year set in slipcover. Taming this lot will be rewarding. Estimate = $180.00 $44.00
285 New Zealand - Kiwi goodness on 16 manila stockpages, with a mostly used range of stamps running from the "Chalons" up to the late 1990’s. Amongst the several hundred stamps are 4 Chalons, including a 2d & 6d blue and two 6d browns. There are some nice "Sidefaces" including a Sunlight ad, premium cancels and values up to 1/-, followed by a mint and used 1d Auckland overprint and 1/2d and 1d from the Christchurch set. Noted some GeoV definitives up to 1/- and a few officials. The QEII material is a bit scattered, with no semi-postals. Condition looks to be typical for this type of material. The catalogue value will add up quickly. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
286 New Zealand - Modern selection of 63 different used from the 2018-2022 period, with face values which include high-values in the amounts of $5.10 and $10.00. Hard to find these days with hardly anybody using stamped postal mail now. 2024 Scott US$252.00 = $340.20 $60.00
287 New Zealand - Postal Stationery aerogramme hoard covering 1945-1995, which was the start of a serious study into the various printings and usages. Includes GeoVI-era "Letter Cards", even though they are really air letters, complete with different printings, papers, flaps, etc, with a mix of mint and used. New Zeland did not produce pre-paid postal stationery in this era, so companies had to be licensed to sell approved designs (this practice still largely exists). Some of these aerogrammes had special printings to appeal to tourism, Christmas or special events. We even noted a couple of "OHMS" aerogrammes. The one time that postal stationery was produced was in the early 1980’s with flight themes, including Ross Dependency. The items are packed into page protectors, so an exact count is difficult, but there looks to be at least 150 items. There is still no definitive work on these items. Maybe you will be the one to write the book. Ex-Kasper. Estimate = $180.00 $10.00
288 New Zealand - Postal stationery mini-collection of 65 mostly mint, mostly different pieces, QV to mid-Elizabethan. Includes envelopes (flaps on mint don’t appear to be stuck, a couple of the used are damaged), airmail envelope, registered envelopes, wrappers, letter cards, postcards (including a nice green QV viewcard), printed matter cards, official postcards and two large OHMS envelopes. Includes different knives, revalues, overprints. A fascinating area to expand your New Zealand postal history collection. The 30 year old specialized Samuels stationery catalogue of these items is at least NZ$1200.00. Seldom offered material. Estimate = $150.00 $85.00
289 North Borneo #261-296. Very Fine and all mint Never Hinged or Lightly Hinged selection of 1954 to 1963 early QEII period issues, consisting of 36 different stamps, all in complete sets, plus four additional stamps in blocks of four. Great topicals. 2024 Scott US$267.90 = $364.10 $60.00
290 Norway #14/1183 plus Back of the Book. Mint and (mostly) used stock of over 600 duplicated 1867 to 1998 period issues, all laid out, organized and identified in one 32 white page stock book. The overall quality is quite nice with a very decent balance of older and more recent issues. Note some unsorted material on the last pages of the stock book. Take a good look at the scans to appreciate the range and quality of the lot. Estimate = $300.00 $12.00
291 Nyasaland Protectorate #8, 9. Fresh mint examples of the 1908 issue 4sh black and carmine and 10sh red and green on green EdwardVII high value keyplates. The 4sh value is Never Hinged. 2024 Scott US$345.00 = $465.75 $42.00
292 Nyasaland Protectorate #10. Fresh and Very Fine lightly cancelled 1908 issue Edward VII black and violet on red £1 high value. Colourful and classic British Africa at it's finest. 2024 Scott US$750.00 = $1,012.50 $160.00
293 Philippines - Multi-source accumulation, going back to Spanish administration and up to about 1980. Includes a couple sections of homemade album pages, a full stockbook, a coverless stockbook, some dealer approvals and a homemade shoebox sized dealer’s stock housed in about 1000x #5 glassine envelopes (probably three thousand mostly used stamps). The group finishes off with a handful of presentation/souvenir folders back to the mid-1950’s. A substantial accumulation (so expect some duplication), as received. Estimate = $140.00 $55.00
294 Poland - An attractive collection highlighted throughout with souvenir sheets including the 1937 King Carol Royal Visit, the 20th Anniversary of Independence and the weather balloon souvenir sheet (#B31 which is nicely used on a registered cover to New York). The various album pages run up to 1983, decent completion rate throughout, with "back of the book", including overprinted occupation issues. Some covers are found throughout, which gives some dimension to this already interesting collection of over 2000 stamps. Estimate = $240.00 $13.00
295 Portugal and Colonies - King Luiz issues start off this substantial mounted collection, identified by the owner for different perforations and colour shades with the used having some interesting and diverse readable cancels. The King Carlos and Ceres issues are well represented, including overprints. There are some multiples which positively break up the appearance of the collection. Above average coverage up to 1975 which includes an interesting section of "back of the book". Many colonies included, with the better being Angola, Portuguese India, Macau, Mozambique and Nyassa. This collector also collected and identified forgeries, reprints and oddities which make for an interesting offering. Approximately 1900 stamps in total. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00
296 Romania #20/1753, B1/B20 and other Back of the Book. Eclectic mix of album pages holds a powerful, thorough collection. Starts with some better Prince Carol issues, including different colours and perforations, then maintains a remarkably complete run into the 20th century with sets and singles to $25.00 throughout. One highlight is a complete set of the 1903 New Post Office set (catalogues $214.25) and a mint set of the 1906 General Exposition (catalogues $219.75). The material is a bit sparser in the 1930’s-1940’s, but regains strength in 1956 with the animal set #1082-1093 (mint) and is a bit hit or miss up to 1965, noting a number of issues with topical interest (e.g. sports, space, animals). There are some nice used semi-postals, and postage dues, plus a scattering of other back of the book issues. Expect some minor faults in early issues, but the overall condition is better than average. About 700 mostly different stamps in total. Estimate = $220.00 $10.00
297 Romania #33/3158, B1/B430 plus other BOB. Substantial mounted collection of 3300 mostly different stamps, starting with an extensive grouping of various "Prince Carol" issues (both perforated and imperforate) with individually catalogue values up to $50.00, with a number with clean readable cancels. Noted three denominations from the 1906 "Exhibition" overprints "SE". The coverage goes up to 1983 is a bit spotty in places. There are some good early semi-postals, lots of post-War airmail stamps, as well as a few other back of the book issues. Includes a couple of postcards and covers which nicely round out this collection. Estimate = $180.00 $10.00
298 Russia #19/3357 plus back of the book. Very old collection stretching back to Czarist Russia with a pleasing range of "Coat of Arms" issues that will await your patient identification. There is good representation through to the early USSR, including the many overprints and revaluations, with better sets and singles. There are better items from the 1930’s including #471 (Gorki) and #478 (Revolution 15th anniversary), mint 1933 "Peoples" set (catalogues $256.00), #547 (mint), #569-572 (Persian Art - cat.$160.00) and a partial Pushkin set. The post-war era is markedly sparser, with a few mint issues in the last couple of years, ending 1967. There is a bit of "back of the book", with the occasional better semi-postal or airmail stamp. Not that you need a bonus on this lot, but there are a couple of pages of printings for use in the Russian-Levant. All housed in an old black Borek springback binder. A high-quality offering, sure to please the intrepid collector. Estimate = $400.00 $11.00
299 Saint Lucia #30/148. Fresh and Very Fine mint Hinged or Never Hinged selection of 44 different 1883 to 1949 period issues, covering the reigns of Victoria, Edward VII, George V and George VI. Includes complete sets and better singles. All neatly laid out on one Hagner stock sheet. 2024 Scott US$298.65 = $403.15 $110.00
300 Seychelles #125/171. Both of the long King George VI definitive sets, complete and postally used, including the many different colour changes. Great eye appeal and overall condition. A very difficult to assemble group of 39 stamps. 2023 Scott US$435.40 = $587.79 $13.00
301 Seychelles #125-141. Fresh, sound and Very Fine mint Lightly Hinged GeoVI 1938-1941 "Young George" pictorial set of 24. 2024 Scott US$367.90 = $496.65 $48.00
302 Spain #1/1487 plus Back of the Book. Fascinating mounted collection in a black "Borek" springback album of mint and used Spanish issues from 1850 to 1967 with some Spanish Morocco included. Lots of 19th century classics, mostly used, with catalogue values up to $20.00 each. In addition to the traditional stamps, this lot has many local issues/overprints, cinderellas and fundraising labels during the 1930’s Civil War. While these labels are not listed in Scott, they add a nice angle to any Spanish collection. Post war, the issues become increasingly mint and in the last couple of years, the mint stamps are Never Hinged. The collection’s disorganization can easily be solved with a bit of patience. A grand total of 1020 stamps. Estimate = $240.00 $15.00
303 Sweden #2/750 plus Back of the Book. First century attractive mounted collection on Borek pages, covering up to 1967. Fairly complete almost right from the start, with early issues that include better (although generally faulty) such as #2, #7, #12, #14. The 1924 UPU Congress issues is complete used up to the 80o value (#197-208), and the UPU issue is near complete (missing the 60o). These two partial sets catalogue $600.00 alone. The collection is almost exclusively used, transiting to mint stamps around 1950. There are some noteworthy semi-postals and officials, plus some terrific "SON" (socked on the nose) cancels throughout, many from many smaller towns. Need to double check perforations, as this collector used a simplified method of collecting. After the early condition issues, the lot becomes steadily higher in quality. A high-quality offering. Estimate = $240.00 $10.00
304 Switzerland #10/40. Sextet of early used Swiss, with a 5r Coat of Arms and 5 nice imperforate "Seated Helvetia" issues, including a 40r with a beautiful SON "Basel Brief Expedition" cancel and a 1 franc lavender, nicely cancelled. Bit tight on the margins in places, and the occasional minor fault, but a very attractive grouping. 2023 Scott US$1592.50 = $2,149.88 $32.00
305 Switzerland #41/65. Mostly used grouping of 19 "Seated Helvetia" issues from 1862-1881, with values up to 1 franc. Better include #42, 48, 50, 59, 65. The mint present are heavily Hinged, but overall condition is better than average for this time period. One of the cheaper stamps is damaged and not counted in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$923.05 = $1,246.12 $22.00
306 Switzerland #69/282, B1/B123, C3/C33 plus other BOB. Six stocksheets with a Swiss collection from 1882 up to 1942, including some nice "back of the book". Has a good range of regular issue definitives and commemoratives, collected as simplified listings, so better printings could be hiding in plain sight. Noted better, such as #75 and #100. There is a better run of mostly used semi-postals, with many of the "Shield" issues and better sets up to 1942 (which catalogue $468.00 alone). There are some attractive used airmail issues, a fistful of postage dues and a few Franchise stamps which await further exploration. 2023 Scott US$884.95 = $1,194.68 $22.00
307 Switzerland #293/305. Complete WWII Armistice or Peace issue of 1945. Issued just a few days after "Victory in Europe", this lot includes some attractively cancelled stamps. The 80c and 1fr issues are CTO with full gum and the 2fr stamp is missing a couple of perforations at the top (mentioned for the record). One of Europe's great sets from the 1940's. 2023 Scott US$806.90 = $1,089.32 $22.00
308 Switzerland - American Helvetia Philatelic Society "not your usual" retired circuit book, with pricing from Zumstein 1995(!). Includes about 133 stamps from the seated Helvetia up to about 1950 with a range of types, printings, shades, cancels. Better include a couple of mid-values of the Pax set, some used Pro-Juventute semi-postals and a terrific group of used early airmail stamps. We noticed that after 30 years, the Zumstein catalogue prices are an uncannily close match to 2023 Scott (e.g. 40 SFr = $40.00). There is a bit more variation in the back of the book, but it indicates that there is over US$1000.00 basic Scott catalogue value here. To sweeten the pot, there is a card of more common mint airmail issues and a fascinating grab bag of loose used Swiss stamps completely unchecked. Estimate = $170.00 $14.00
309 Switzerland - Maximum Card HOARD. A dealer box (although from a collector), stuffed with envelopes dated 1981-1986, each with a complete set of "Maximum" cards. These cards feature the stamps of a series, affixed and specially cancelled to the picture side of a related image postcard. Duplicated, with up to 10 of each set. All the envelopes are original Post Office purchased, which will make sorting these out very easy. Wonderful stock to keep what you need and sell the remainder, as the individual sets can easily be listed online for resale (with duplication to allow for an inventory). Over 275 packages (and over 750 cards). Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
310 Switzerland - Specialists should take a close look at this mounted collection, as this is a goldmine of issues (especially if using the Zumstein reference book, which will delve into places Scott catalogue does not). This pre-1990 offering includes about 40 "Seated Helveticas" with a couple imperforate; some identified, some with the notation "check" (presumably for papers and different printings) and a trio of attractive covers. Decent coverage of 1920’s-1930’s issues including near complete used "shield" Pro-Juventute issues and some decent airmails. Noted cancels, tete-beche pairs and a couple of souvenir sheets which complement nicely this 1300+ stamp collection, with potential at every turn of the page. Estimate = $400.00 $10.00
311 Thailand #12/1047 plus Back of the Book. Pulled from a dealer’s stock, a mix of early used Siamese issues, including a few airmail issues and better items that include #156 and #202. This is followed by over 20 different more recent booklets which, despite having similar looking covers, have differing contents (includes #922, 929, 951, 1023-1024, B55). The stamps on the page following the airmails, including the three used blocks are not counted in the total catalogue value. 2023 Scott US$556.95 = $765.38 $10.00
312 United Nations - Chaotic file box with everything UN, up to the early 2000’s. About half the lot is traditional collections in 4 binders, a combination of mint used, with some postal stationery (strength in NY issues). The lot’s tribute to entropy includes 4 of the custom sheets (circa 2006), some mint sheetlets (e.g. Animals, oceans), and then a couple of bundles of presentation cards and year sets. The remaining space is filled with a few FDCs and more postal stationery. Expect some duplication. A bargain at the estimated value. Estimate = $130.00 $10.00
313 United Nations - Four Deluxe "Flags of the Nations" presentation / prepared collection albums from the 1980's / 1990's. A total of 154 First Day Covers, each bearing a "Flags of the Nations" series issue, neatly mounted on specially prepared pages with in-depth descriptions. Also included are several loose pages, not yet incorporated into the albums. These albums would represent a huge initial investment / subscription to receive the collections as issued. Estimate = $140.00 $0.00
314 USA #230-238. All sound and mint full OG Lightly Hinged part set of nine 1893 Columbian Exposition commemorative issues consisting of the 1c up to the 15c value. A more than decent start to a mint set. 2024 Scott US$561.50 = $758.00 $55.00
315 USA - An extensive American mounted collection. Starting with some early issues, including four "Black Jacks" (one on a cover piece), some "grill" issues with well above average coverage into the (including some lovely cancels). The Columbus issue is mostly complete up to the 50c, Trans-Mississippi to 10c and the Pan-American set is complete used. There are some better mint examples that slip in here and there, such as #302/307 and #551-570. The Washington/Franklin issues are well represented, including some imperforates. The collection ends in 1948, but the Airmails have decent coverage into the 1980’s. We also noted Parcel Post, Special Delivery, Postage Dues, Revenues and a bit of Canal Zone and Hawaii. This collection concludes witht 30+ intriguing covers which have lots of character with interesting cancels, destinations and routes. Substantial catalogue value from these 1500+ stamps. Estimate = $750.00 $290.00
316 USA - Bankers Box that includes three separate "Liberty" albums with used collections that go back to the late 19th century, with the usual mixed condition, supported by more used material on stockpages and bags. The better material includes some stockpages with early 20th century commemorative and some mint prexies, including complete booklets. There is a bit of mint material from the 1970’s, including a flag sheet and a small pile of complete sheets from the 6c-8c era, some postally used, some without gum. All of this is concluded with a bit of mint Palau, Micronesia, and Marshall Islands. Estimate = $130.00 $10.00
317 USA - Collection in Two Harris Liberty Albums. Mint and used collection of many hundreds of different 1860s to 1970s period stamps and souvenir sheets, including both regular issues as well as a decent range of "Back of the Book" material. Housed in two Liberty Binders on a mix of printed and blank pages. Sparse in the earlies, the collection becomes more comprehensive in the 'teens and twenties. Noted face values to $5.00, all the imperf 1930s souvenir sheets, a good number of complete sets and a nice "sampler" selection of "Back of the Book" issues. Great basis for expansion with the possibility of finding a treasure or two in the mix. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00
318 USA - Mint and Used Collection in a Minkus "All American" Album. Hundreds of different mint and used late 1870s to late 1970s period stamps, souvenir sheets and booklets, including definitive, commemorative and "Back of the Book" issues, all mounted in a slightly battered Minkus album. A bit thin in the earlier issues, the collection becomes increasingly comprehensive in the 1940s and up. This more modern material is mostly mint and we note face values up to $5.00. A great starter collection and excellent basis for expansion. Significant total catalogue value with a good amount of useable modern mint postage to boot! Take a good look at the scans. Estimate = $250.00 $10.00
319 USA - Question: What does it look like when you take a very mixed bag of American classics and throw them onto a trio of black stockpages? Probably half of the stamps in this lot are strictly spacefillers but hidden amongst these are some better 19th century issues with real potential. Unchecked for grills, corks, printing types. There are some obviously higher value stamps and by the 20th century the stamps become mint (although we suspect some re-gumming in a few cases), with some coil pairs and imperforates, a few plate blocks and a bit of back of the book. Even a 1933 cardboard "Sockeye Quarter" from Everett Washington. Some significant catalogue value for the gambler who is willing and able to filter out the better items. Estimate = $150.00 $42.00
320 USA - Stunning MINT NH holding. A 2" binder, stuffed with Minkus brand album pages and a couple dozen Vario style stockpages, boasting an early 1980's to late 1990's collection of mint Never Hinged issues. A high-quality offering, featuring numerous sheets / panes / blocks / corner inscription blocks / self-adhesives and high-values. Take a good look at the pictures to appreciate the scope of this collection, assembled over several years by a collector with great attention to quality. Very conservatively valued for only the usable postage value, not counting any of the "non-denominated" stamps (including 1st class). Total face value US$947.30 in Canadian Funds = $1,275.30 $42.00
321 USA - Three-part collection, filling a book box. Part one consist of a 2007-series "Liberty" binder with pages to 2000. The 19th century is much better represented than usual, including values up to the 24c-50c range (attractive, but lots of condition issues). Part 2, which is almost of equal description is a two-volume "Sentinel CWS "USA album, this one with pages up to 1999, mostly used, with a few mint sheetlets from the 29c-32c era. Part 3 is a binder filled with manila stockpages with a few thousand used stamps up to 2007, with some high catalogue value and potential from the "classics" era. Estimate = $150.00 $22.00
322 USA - Year sets, scraps of collections, "102" cards, a tin of glassines, loose stamps and all sorts of "odds and ends" filling a U-Haul box that is the remnants of a consignment. There is mint material from the 1970’s-1990’s found throughout this lot (the face value is probably US$150.00 alone). There is some early material, but in the usual mixed condition, some Prexie, precancels and some "back of the book". There is a bundle of 4c-5c blocks and plate blocks from the 1950’s and a bunch of unsorted chaos! Estimate = $170.00 $10.00
323 Vatican City #1/1008 plus some Back of the Book. An attractive collection running from 1929 to 1995. Includes, Pope Pius XI (#28-31 used), 1934 overprints #35-36 (mint no gum), #41-#46 used and the 1938 Archeological Congress set (used). Up to the 1940’s the issues are mostly mint Hinged, with the occasional cover included. Up to the 1960’s the mint stamps are mostly Never Hinged, with souvenir sheets added in the 1980’s onwards. Also included are "back of the book" issues including B1-B4 (mint) and E11-12 (mint). Approximately 700 stamps in total. Estimate = $240.00 $36.00
324 Worldwide - A baker’s dozen (13) of albums and stockbooks plus assorted extras that have packed this U-Haul box to its limits. Most interesting is the century old "Lincoln" album with several hundred stamps, most pre-1920. Just slightly younger is a "Modern" album that is again quite full. From the Harris family are a "Statesman Deluxe" and a "Traveller" album (total 4,000+ stamps here). The strength of this lot is likely Europe, with lots of Belgium and Germany noted, but also saw Switzerland, Great Britain, Argentina and some topicals which include space, birds, butterflies, fish and maps. Some value in just the stockbooks and pages alone, as retail prices on these have been steadily rising. Great for the philatelic explorer. Estimate = $180.00 $10.00
325 Worldwide - A not-so-dirty dozen box with a dozen albums and stockbooks. In no particular order, there is a folio with a mounted collection of Bavaria/Belgium/Bulgaria, an old small format "Triumph" album laden with 19th century (this may be worth the price of the box alone). There is a springback album with "M" to "P" countries. There is a better than average 2-volume collection of QEII 1977 Silver Jubilee issues (was originally priced at $395.00). There is a binder of Jersey (including postage dues) and a bit sparsely populated "Ambassador" album. There is a binder with 30x Vario brand, 7 pocket pages (again filled with stamps), a better than usual "Modern" album and finishing with two older European-sized stockbooks (one with Europe, the other with a true mishmash of worldwide). Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
326 Worldwide - A treasure trove from a "collector of almost anything" filling an envelope box with singles and sets very randomly housed in "102" cards and glassines. Mint, used, much from the 19th century and didn’t see anything after 1980. To add to your enjoyment, the collector who assembled this lot reused holders without updating the information. In the first inch of "102" cards, we noted stamps from Germany, Austria, Romania, Rhodesia, France, South Africa, Paraguay, Newfoundland, Great Britain, Indonesia, Belize, New Zealand and Spain. If there are any concentrations in this lot, they would include Canada, United States, Italy and Vatican. Amongst the chaos we noted revenue stamps, reprints/forgeries which add another layer of interest. A few hundred holders, in which we noted $5.00-$10.00 stamps throughout. Estimate = $130.00 $22.00
327 Worldwide - Accordion file of philatelic fun and treasure, sorted from A-Z. While we are not sure if this was the collector’s duplicates or was material waiting to be integrated into their collection, one thing we are sure of is the contents are well above average! Each letter has a range of material, sorted by country and placed in envelopes, glassine or stockcard. It is diverse, as an example, for the letter "A", there are glassines of Algeria, Aland, Andorra, Armenia, Australian Antarctic Territory, Angola, an envelope for used high value Australia circa 2000, an envelope of Argentina, early Austria on a black stockcard, a couple Australian presentation packs (face AUD$28.00) and some Albania (and that is just the letter "A"!). The highlights are too numerous to list but did note Montserrat #159-173 mint NH and several mint Hinged sets of St. Lucia between #95/515 (these alone catalogue almost $300.00). Mostly stamps, but there are a few covers from France & Germany. Potential at every turn. Estimate = $250.00 $20.00
328 Worldwide - Africa-esque dealer’s stock in four homemade boxes, sorted by country with individual stamps in a #5 glassine envelope, with anywhere from 1-15 stamps in each. Includes Burundi, Guinea, Tanzania, Mauritius, St. Helena, Liberia and Morocco. We estimate there are about 3000 glassines and conservatively 5000 stamps, with the occasional block or small souvenir sheet. This was a collector’s retirement project to become a vest-pocket dealer that never materialized, and the stock was never viewed by prospective buyers. The retail value of the glassines alone is a couple hundred dollars. Offered as received by us. Estimate = $140.00 $22.00
329 Worldwide - Bankers Box Accumulation. A treasure trove of material, the result of a collectors philatelic "clean-up". We noted a package of mint US airmail issues (including earlier), an Audubon "Birds of the World" FDC presentation album (the stamps catalogue value alone would add up quickly!), China Year Set Books with mint stamps x3 (1991-1993), "Ambassador" album with world stamps, a Ziploc of Canada / World (looks to be selected for postmarks), a couple of small stockbooks packed with USA / Canada, a dozen or so high-quality pages with Mint NH / FDC "Royals" topicals (including Will and Kate), several small batches of Germany (including inflation era sheets, curled a bit), a small collection of "Chess on Stamps" and two decent stockbooks with an assortment of used Canada. An enticing lot, filled with a wide array of material, with hidden gems throughout! Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
330 Worldwide - Bankers Box filled with 14 stockbooks of various makes and sizes, filled (to different extents, some sparsely) with a wide array of worldwide stamps (often sorted by country or geographical area). We noted some decent showings of Cyprus, Canada, Great Britain, Barbados and some interesting "flower" topicals. Most of the stockbooks can be cleaned up for reuse, but likely a couple be at the end of their use once the stamps are removed. Estimated based on $80.00 for the stockbooks and $70.00 for the stamps within. Estimate = $150.00 $42.00
331 Worldwide - Bankers Box of Thousands. Loaded carton containing an eclectic and interesting mix of countries, including large groups of South Africa, Denmark, Iran, Bulgaria, Canada and USA plus lesser quantities of material from a myriad of other countries/colonies. Much is mounted in albums or on stock pages. Worth a good sort! Estimate = $150.00 $13.00
332 Worldwide - Battered box of dealer’s bits and pieces on 2-pocket black stockcards. The most notable is in the interior box with some Europe (notably Belgium, Austria and Cyprus) British Commonwealth, with a touch of Asian material. Most of the material is sets or singles with catalogue values up to $10 each. There is some unchecked Victorian-era material with potential upside value, a few complete booklets, a few souvenir sheets and there is a bit of revenue and cinderella material that turns up every once in a while. A real hodge-podge of item, but with great potential. Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
333 Worldwide - Bulging banker's box crammed full with 24 lbs of foreign & USA stamps, "on and off" paper, mostly in baggies as received from local charities, but also two early 1950's albums with stamps. A stamp lover's winter's worth of fun. Estimate = $120.00 $13.00
334 Worldwide - Captain Cook topical collection in three cover albums with a couple hundred postcards and covers most related to the 200th anniversary of his major travels through the Pacific. Almost everything in his life is commemorated, including birthplace, his ship the "Endeavour", navigation equipment, statues & monuments, paintings and pictures of places he might have landed or seen and people he might have met and museums. Not surprisingly the majority of the material is from the countries closely identified with his travels (Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii and Canada). Overall condition is excellent, including the albums. Lots of work went into building this collection. Estimate = $120.00 $0.00
335 Worldwide - Consignment balance in a "small" U-Haul box. The highlight is a shoebox of German material with envelopes, glassines and a couple of 3rd Reich era used souvenir sheets. Following this, in no particular order is...1) Pair of binders with computer-generated pages for France 1900-1998 (on a good quality stock), with a few hundred mostly used stamps. 2) A 16-page brown Lighthouse stockbook with a couple hundred stamps from "F" and "G" countries. 3) A nice binder and slipcase with the startings of a Maldive Islands mint collection on Hagner-brand double sided pages (probably a couple of hundred dollars catalogue value here). 4) A small shoebox with a mostly used assortment of Sri Lanka. 5) Lastly, a thick binder with British Royals topicals on all kinds of issues from across the Commonwealth mint and used 1972-2010 (the original cost on this will add up quickly). Overall condition is excellent. Estimate = $200.00 $44.00
336 Worldwide - Eastern Mediterranean (Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey) dealer’s stock, housed in four homemade boxes. Due to a change in health, this material has never been viewed by collectors and is being sold as received. Each box holds about 1000x #5 glassine envelopes, with each glassine identified by Scott and contains between 1-10 stamps. The stamps are often used, although there is a smattering of mint (including Never Hinged). Three countries in this lot: Bulgaria (two boxes) #12/3986, with a few small sized souvenir sheets and a handful of back of the book. Greece includes #6/2283 with some back of the book and Epirus. Turkey runs from #42/2877, with lots of semi-postal, officials, with a touch of "offices in Asia" and "Cyprus". While most of the individual items in this lot will be more common, there may well be "finds". The glassines alone would cost a couple hundred dollars. Offered as received. Estimate = $140.00 $10.00
337 Worldwide - Europa Sets.Mint and used collection of 1950s to 1970s issue "Europa" common design types, all laid out in one 32 black-page stockbook. Estimate = $120.00 $26.00

Volume 2 "Indonesia to Latvia" 1335 stamps, with notable Indonesia, Israel, Italy (this album is green, the rest are blue). Volume 3 is "Haiti to Venezuela" (Latin America + Philippines) 929 stamps in total. Volume 4 is British Commonwealth "Aden to Leeward Islands" 1300 stamps, with decent Australia (no Canada or GB). A grand total of 5,273 stamps, most 1940’s - 1970’s. The value of the albums alone is substantial, which are in good shape. Estimate = $180.00 $20.00
339 Worldwide - French Colonies. An extensive collection/selection/accumulation of French Colonies including (in glassines): Vietnam, Indo-China, Mali, Monaco, Andorra, New Hebrides, Tunisia, New Caledonia, Upper Volta, Polynesia, SP&M, Libya, Somali Coast, Togo, Cameroun, Laos and Congo.

Many 1000s of stamps in total covering the period from the late 19th century through to the 1950/60s, in both mint and used condition, heavy duplication of many issues. Owner's Estimate = $750.00 $24.00
340 Worldwide - Intriguing looseleaf ledger book with hand-ruled pages houses a diverse and interesting collection, populated with 1870-1930’s issues. Strength is in GB, Canada, India and British Colonies, with some Europe (early Germany and Switzerland are worth checking out) and a touch of South America, Africa and USA. Mostly used, expect the mint to be heavily hinged. This is one of those lots where you see better items everywhere. Some of the material has fallen out (or was never mounted) and has been slid towards the binding. Hundreds of stamps. How old is this 2" deep sales ledger? Inside the cover is a sticker for Berry’s Drugs and Stationery Vernon BC, which operated around the time of the Great War. Other than some penciled notes where someone started cataloguing it a few years ago, this book has been untouched for 80 years! Estimate = $200.00 $20.00
341 Worldwide - Kiloware / Cigar Box / Packet filled Bankers Box. A "bulky" mix filling a Bankers Box including large packets of USA / Great Britain off paper, several envelopes of mixed world material, a few cigar / chocolate boxes with mixed worldwide stamps and dozens of envelopes with sorted German stamps. While most of the stamps are more common, the shear volume alone (plus the enjoyment of sorting) should prove this lot worthwhile. Estimate = $130.00 $10.00
342 Worldwide - Rubbermaid container with dealer’s "show stock", including single country offerings, souvenir sheets and "102" cards with sets and singles. Strong in British Commonwealth including 21st century Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, Alderney along with some notable Malaysia, Papua New Guinea and Falklands. There are many other counties here, including bits and pieces of Western Europe, Pacific Islands and some Africa and Asia. There are also pockets of topical interest, especially boats/ships, dinosaurs, animals and plants. The overall condition is excellent, there is very little duplication and the original dealer pricing was very reasonable. Estimate = $240.00 $12.00
343 Worldwide - Seven volumes, three stockbooks and a small bundle of loose album pages / stoc pages are crammed into this U-Haul box. Much of the material is mounted on homemade album pages, noting Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Panama, Peru, Uruguay, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, and Commonwealth countries "A" to "B" (no Australia) and "G" to "J" (no GB). There is a nice 32-page brown UniSafe stockbook, a safety deposit box stockbook and a battered stockbook with 1000 topicals mostly from "Dune" countries. The books are laden with stamps - probably 10,000 in total, as received. A sorter’s paradise. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
344 Worldwide - Small Carton for Winter Sorting. A small "stuffed to the gills" box lot containing a wide-ranging and randomish mix of Worldwide material.

This is followed by some notable Sri Lanka, Europe and the stamps for the 1972/1973 Royal Wedding/Anniversary common design sets, a large binder with 35 ISP produced commemorative panels from 1981-1982 showing a stamp, a FDC and a matching metal reproduction of the stamp and 3 or 4 albums of mixed WW stamps. Finally, any breathing room was filled with a couple of small stockbooks with more worldwide material. Estimate = $150.00 $10.00
346 Worldwide - U-Haul Carton Crowded Conglomeration. Massive hoard of diverse and useful material, aggregated from smaller lots, packed into one large carton. The consignor has organized the lot into nine categories, consisting of various stock books and binders.

A total of 68 "world" stamps (+ 76 from the American issue, including a complete sheet), 159 souvenir sheets/sheetlets, 12 covers and 16 plate proofs pairs. Estimate = $300.00 $12.00
349 Worldwide - Elvis Presley Topical Collection - Part 2 -"Q"to "U" countries, with some "St. Vincent" in large 50 page full-sheet UniSafe brand four-ring binder with matching green slipcase (retail $140.00), which is about 2/3 full - perfect to expand. Comprehensive, mostly mint Never Hinged collection of singles, sets (including complete sets where Elvis was only one of the artists being commemorated), souvenir sheets, and the occasional maxi-card / first day cover.

350 Worldwide - Elvis Presley Topical Collection - Part 3 - The unmounted material. This collector was still an active buyer of everything Elvis up until a few years ago, but not everything that was purchased made it into her albums. As with many collections which delve into the more modern material, the more recent material is often the most expensive. This small stationery box is packed with "new issues" from about 2010 onwards and a bit of ephemera (most with their original price tags still on them). There is probably enough material to make a full third album of the size and value of the first album. There might be a very slight bit of duplication with the previous two lots. Overall condition is excellent. Includes countries not represented in the earlier two lots, such as a lovely Australian presentation folder. The original cost of this material was over $1000.00, plus the extras that the collector scooped up along the way. Estimate = $300.00 $12.00
351 Worldwide - Europe - Classic Ka-Be "Ideal" album with pages to 1941 (and no stamps after that), covering most of Continental Europe to various degrees. Strong in Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Central Lithuania - including some good back of the book) and Eastern Europe (Bulgaria, the entities that became Jugoslavia, Russia/USSR, Czechoslovakia, Hungary). In all, there is representation from over 40 countries (with worthwhile Austria, Gibraltar, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Turkey). No Benelux, France or Scandinavia. Easily a couple thousand stamps, with a mix of mint and used. Includes better singles throughout, with hours of enjoyment ahead for the intrepid collector. Estimate = $400.00 $110.00
352 Worldwide - Europe - Smaller mid-European country grouping of Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, and Monaco. The 220 Liechtenstein stamps include values from the 1912 issue and early imperforate and perforated issues and then becomes spotty from the 1920’s to about 1983. The "back of the book" is equally light, but includes O1-O7, the first official overprinted issue (missing the top value) mint no gum. Luxembourg includes some early "Coat of Arms" issues which will need your critical eye, and then lots of issues to the 1920’s. Includes #315-317 mint never Hinged, and decent used coverage until the late 1970’s plus a couple of souvenir sheets including the 1939 anniversary sheet (mint). Noteworthy "back of the book" includes semi-postals, airmail and official overprints. Over 600 stamps. Saving the best for last is Monaco, with some mint Prince Charles III and Prince Albert issues with individual catalogue values up to $85.00. Afterwards, the quantity and value of the coverage drops, so this is for the "classic" collectors. Monaco counts out at 320 stamps. In total over 1100 stamps, with duplication generally only when there is both a mint and used stamp, or if there are interesting cancellations. Estimate = $240.00 $17.00
353 Worldwide - Horse Topical - The "Horse of the Month" stamp service ran a subscription service which sent collectors new worldwide issues with anything remotely horse related. This includes breeds, types of service, progression of transportation and even carousels. In some months, historical issues were included, so stamps are seen back to the 1960’s. Besides stamps, there are souvenir sheets, commemorative panels, the occasional first day cover, postal stationery and one numismatic cover. Based on the 76 envelopes in this lot, this collector was a member for about 6 years. The packages were never explored or mounted, so they should all be in excellent condition. There are a few hundred stamps here, which would have cost at least $1000.00 as new issues. Estimate = $170.00 $13.00
354 Worldwide - Scandinavia - Faroe Islands, Denmark, Aland and Greenland featured in 20 annual and presentation folders from the mid-1980’s (with a bit of duplication). These are all mostly in the original packaging from the new issue service, but also comes with three stockpages, some complete booklets and a couple of glassines with mint stamps from the same era. The lot finishes with a few First Day items, several maxi-cards from Denmark and a small handful of Aland First Day Covers (including the 1984 issue with both single and gutter pairs, these alone catalogue over 400 SKR in Facit) and a few Aland machine franking labels. A great value combination offering, sure to please any collector of Scandinavian material. Estimate = $150.00 $65.00
355 Worldwide Collection - Volume 1 British Commonwealth. "Aden" to "Bermuda" in Scott International album with pages up to 1982. While many countries are present, there is decent representation from Antigua, Ascension (GeoVI), Bahamas, Barbados (lots of Britannia issues) and ending with some nice Bermuda. About 1500 different stamps, with a mix of mint and used. Where there is duplication, it is usually because of both mint and used being represented, or there being a better cancel to be included. While much of the material is common, with lots of short sets, there are better individual stamps of up to $25.00 catalogue found throughout. The sections for Australia and Great Britain which were previously in this binder are being sold as separate lots in this sale. Binder in decent condition, which new retails about $75.00 CDN. Estimate = $180.00 $11.00
356 Worldwide Collection - Volume 10 Russia / Soviet Union + Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania. Beautifully mounted collection stretching from 19th century Czarist issues up to the mid-1980’s, with good coverage throughout and strength in the classic period and with lots of better 1930’s issues. Includes mint and used, perforated and imperforate, with printing variants (papers, perforations) and overprints. The owner has identified a number of items that need extra research. From 1935 onwards, better used includes the anti-war, Moscow subway, Spartacist games, and Persian Art issues. Coverage through the war period forward is decent, supplemented with the occasional souvenir sheet or cover. Some early semi-postals are here, as is a respectable offering of 1930’s air mail issues. Approximately 4100 stamps, with individual catalogue values up to $50.00 each. All of this quality Russia is rounded out a few Baltic countries which are represented with an additional couple hundred stamps. All housed in a Scott "International" album which is in decent condition. Estimate = $500.00 $55.00
357 Worldwide Collection - Volume 11 Germany 2/1408, B1/B602, C1/C61. Massive, thought-provoking and extensive collection of 3800 mint and used stamps from 1872 up to 1983. Starts with a good run of early "Eagle" issues followed by a significant amount of Germania issues, including lots of "socked-on-the-nose" cancels and a few perfins. The inflation period is mostly mint and the Third Reich period often has both mint and used examples. The post-war period is more used than mint, in which we noted the semi-postals are a bit "hit or miss" but includes better sets (noted a complete 1936 Berlin Olympics booklet, and two used sets of the B141-B143 overprinted "Auto Race" issue). The lot concludes with a bit of airmail material - which includes a Hindenburg cover. Where there is duplication, it is usually because there is both a mint and used example of a stamp, or that there are nice cancels, or a multiple (including margin copies). Additionally, there are a small number of booklet panes or souvenir sheets and every few pages there is a cover that really complements this collection. Given the size and age of the material, expect the occasional fault, but overall, the stamps appear to be in decent condition, with eye-catching items everywhere you look. Estimate = $800.00 $12.00
358 Worldwide Collection - Volume 12 Czechoslovakia and East Germany. Two blocks of collections from the Eastern Block. The Czech issues start in 1918 and has a very complete run up to the early 1970’s (and a bit inconsistent after that), including back of the book, with a few nice covers that increase the appeal of this collection (such as the Praga 1955 Exhibition souvenir sheet on registered cover), and finishing with some Bohemia and Moravia. The DDR stamps section starts out a little slow, but that is compensated for by nine lovely covers and first day covers, with some better issues. Noted the Karl Marx perforated souvenir sheet, some multiples of the official issues and the odd better item that peeks out from time to time. In mounted in aa cloth-tape reinforced Scott International album. Estimate = $200.00 $10.00
359 Worldwide Collection - Volume 13 Asia. A very mixed bag of Asia, which starts with the ever-popular early China Republic issues, with better stamps mixed throughout (with overprint and cancellation interest as well). There is a touch of Taiwanese issues to be found, but no PRC. There is decent coverage of Indonesia 1950’s-1960’s issues, but the best is Japan from the late 19th century and includes a "tourist folder" followed by coverage into the early 1970’s, supplemented with a few covers and some "Cinderella" issues. There is light coverage of Korea, Laos, Maldives Islands and Manchukuo, but the collection gains steam again with Nepal and the Philippines, finishing with a fair bit of material from Thailand and Vietnam. The Scott International album has been reinforced with cloth tape, but is functional. Estimate = $170.00 $13.00
360 Worldwide Collection - Volume 14 Latina "Argentina" to "Haiti" in Scott International album with pages up to 1983. A classically focused collection with significant coverage up to about 1910, including back of the book issues (especially airmails). Mint, used, with a hint of supporting material like revenues, covers and the occasional souvenir sheet. Includes Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil (with some Brazilian "Bullseye" issues that require a critical eye), Chile (starts with an intriguing group of 11 "Columbus" imperfs), Columbia, Costa Rica (uneven coverage after 1920), Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Haiti. Thousands of stamps, most hinged but with some in mounts. The binder is bursting at the seams and has been reinforced with a matching fabric tape. Estimate = $300.00 $55.00
361 Worldwide Collection - Volume 15 Latin America. "Honduras" to "Venezuela" in Scott International album with pages up to 1983. A classically focused collection with significant coverage up to about 1910, including back of the book issues. After this well focused group of early material, there is uneven coverage up to the 1980’s. A mix of mint and used, with a hint of supporting material like revenues or covers. The countries included are Honduras, Mexico (lots of Hidalgo issues), Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, El Salvador, Uruguay and Venezuela. Thousands of stamps, most hinged, some in mounts. The binder is bursting at the seams and has been reinforced with a matching fabric tape. Estimate = $200.00 $42.00
362 Worldwide Collection - Volume 16 Hungary. Significant collection of Hungary, assembled by a curious collector with an eye for different printings, shades, perforations and attractive cancels. A complete album of mint and used up to 1983, with better pieces scattered throughout. Amongst a busy "back of the book" section are several nice semi-postal souvenir sheets and a hint of Fiume issues. Over 2000 stamps are housed in a modest condition Scott International binder. Estimate = $160.00 $13.00
363 Worldwide Collection - Volume 17 Middle east, Mesopotamia and some Africa. In alphabetical order includes Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Liberia, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria and Turkey. The tape-reinforced Scott International album seems a bit sparsely populated, but there are still about 4,000 stamps here, and the pictures will show you the some of the better pages. We noted some items with catalogue values to about $40.00, with additional cancel potential. This collector also included interesting items to break up the uniformity of the collection, so there are a few covers too. Estimate = $140.00 $0.00
364 Worldwide Collection - Volume 18 France and Colonies. A fabulous collection housed in a Scott International album with over 3,000 stamps. The collection starts strong in 19th century items including dozens of Ceres and Napolean III issues (mostly used but with a few mint) plus 20 domestic covers. The previous owner has identified many of the items with somewhat recent catalogue values of up to $100.00 each. We noted good representation of the Peace and Commerce up to the "Liberty and Peace" issues (used copy of #126 and #132). There is very complete coverage through the 1920’s-1930’s (noted a block of 6 of #262) with the regular issues well represented and strong until about 1983. The "back of the book" is equally well matched, with a good run of semi-postals from the 1930’s including a lightly Hinged copy of B34, and a cover with a set of B249-B254 (but with lots of other better in between). The Airmails include C17 used, C22 mint. The previous owner has included little gems throughout, such as gutter pairs, beautiful cancels, "Cinderellas", revenues and covers. But we aren’t done yet, as there are issues from Colonies (including post-independence), in which we noted a used copy of Cochin (China) #1 (catalogues $120.00), Algeria, and 1960’s issues from African colonies such as Burundi, Congo, Cameroon, Chad. Estimate = $1,000.00 $95.00
365 Worldwide Collection - Volume 19 - Netherlands and Colonies. Extensive classic-focused mounted collection of Dutch stamps up to 1980. Lots of different perforations, printings and selected cancels noted, with the previous owner having identified and priced many of the better items. Mostly used, with some mint here and there and the occasional cover. There is a good offering of semi-postals, including some sheetlets and includes some colonies with some earlier Curacao and lots of pre-war Dutch Indies. Despite there being over 1500 stamps, the Scott International binder has lots of room for expansion (binder a bit split). Estimate = $360.00 $13.00
366 Worldwide Collection - Volume 2 British Commonwealth. "British East Africa" to "Hong Kong" in Scott International album with pages up to 1983. While many countries are present, there is noteworthy mention of British East Africa #36 used (catalogue US$110.00), British Honduras, Brunei "River scenes", Burma, a nice run of Ceylon/Sri Lanka, Cyprus, Dominica. This is all followed by some Falkland Islands (& Dependencies), Fiji, Gibraltar (including some KGVI perforation and watermark variants), Ghana, Gold Coast, Grenada, and a respectable offering of Hong Kong. About 3700 mostly different stamps, with a mix of mint and used. When there is duplication, it is usually because of both mint and used being represented, or there being a better cancel, perforation difference, etc. While there are many more common stamps, better individual stamps of up to $25.00 catalogue found throughout. The binder is in reasonable condition. Estimate = $300.00 $34.00
367 Worldwide Collection - Volume 20 - French Colonies. Collection of both colonial and post-independence issues from over 20 French colonies present. A strong representation from St. Pierre and Miquelon, Reunion, Ivory Coast and Sudan, with a mix of mint and used, interspersed with an occasional "bonus" item such as a cover, revenue or Cinderella. Many of the African colonies have a smattering of overprints on French stamps, or partial sets of "Common Design" issues, followed by better coverage of 1960’s post-independence issues which are often colourful and topical laden. About 3000 stamps fill this Scott International album but still has the feel of being lightly populated. There are undoubtedly finds to be found here. Estimate = $250.00 $60.00
368 Worldwide Collection - Volume 3 British Commonwealth. "Ireland" to "Nauru" in Scott International album with pages up to 1983. While multiple countries are present, there is noteworthy mention of Ireland (including a few covers), Jamaica (with a couple of attractive 1935 Silver Jubilee blocks), Kenya (with Kenya Uganda, KUT and Uganda / German East Africa), Labuan and Leeward Islands. For collectors of the Malay Peninsula, there is some Malaya/Malaysia, including States, Singapore and Straits Settlements. All of this is folloed by a decent representation of Malta and Mauritius, with a touch of Montserrat. Approximately 3700 mostly different stamps, with a mix of both mint and used. When there is duplication, it is usually because both mint and used are represented, or there being a better cancel or perforation difference to showcase. While many of the stamps are more common, there are better individual stamps of up to $25.00 catalogue value to found throughout. The binder itself is in reasonable condition. Estimate = $240.00 $24.00
369 Worldwide Collection - Volume 4 British Commonwealth. "New Hebrides" to "Solomon Islands" in Scott International album with pages up to 1982. While many countries are present, there is decent representation noted from New Zealand (lots of QV up to 1940, with some better covers among the QEII issues, and some Cook Islands and Niue), Nigeria, North Borneo, Nyasaland, Papua (and with New Guinea), Pakistan, Rhodesia, St. Helena (with overprints) and a good run of St. Lucia. About 3700 mostly different stamps, with a mix of mint and used. When there is duplication, it is usually because of both mint and used being represented, or there being a better cancel, perforation difference to be included. While there are lots of more common, there are better individual stamps with up to $25.00 catalogue found throughout. The binder has been put through its paces and is tape reinforced to keep the philatelic goodness inside. Estimate = $240.00 $24.00
370 Worldwide Collection - Volume 5 British Commonwealth. "St. Vincent" to "Zanzibar" in Scott International album with pages up to 1983. While a multitude of countries are represented, notable areas include St. Vincent, Samoa, Sarawak, Seychelles and the ever-popular Sierra Leone, the latter with both "classics" and lots of modern "self-stick" issues. South Africa includes many pairs (English / Afrikaans language) and lots of "back of the book" coverage. South West Africa is equally well represented, as is Natal, Orange River Colony and Cape of Good Hope (including "triangles"). The Transvaal section is intriguing, plus there is some worthwhile Trinidad, a pair of the "penguin labels" and 1960 "Seallife" from Tristan da Cunha, finishing with some British Virgin Islands. Approximately 4500 mostly different stamps, with a mix of mint and used. Where there is duplication, it is usually because of both mint and used being represented, or a better cancel or perforation difference was included. We noted many better individual stamps of up to $25.00 catalogue each throughout. The binder is in reasonable condition. Estimate = $300.00 $34.00
371 Worldwide Collection - Volume 6 Italy, Colonies and San Marino. Superior, value-laden mounted collection, strong from the classical era into the 1930’s. This collector had an eye for attractive stamp and was always looking for interesting variants, such as shades, cancels and printing oddities. A mix of 2000 mint and used stamps, with better items noted by pencil. Noted many $20.00 - $50.00 items or sets, with the occasional item up to $100.00 sitting inconspicuously. Good Fascist-era and post-war issues with some later coverage to the 1980’s. The "back of the book" is not to be overlooked, with better semi-postals (such as B35-37 used), airmails, postage dues and special deliveries. The "cherry on top" of the collection is the cinderellas, revenues and covers to be found throughout. There are a couple hundred Colonial issues, with be best being the showing from Somalia. There is a bit of "States" material from Sardinia and Roman States (these being the usual dubious issues). If you still need more Mediterranean Madness, there is a section of about 400 San Marino stamps of the same quality and quirkiness. A rare opportunity. Note: Some of the better sets from this collection are being sold individually, but there is still substantial "meat" on these bones. Estimate = $700.00 $14.00
372 Worldwide Collection - Volume 7 Balkans. Yugoslavia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Greece, Crete, making for a Balkan and "Balkan-adjacent" countries collection. The Yugoslavian material is strongest in the pre-war era, with some overprints, revalues and a couple of attractive covers. The three countries that ended up forming Yugoslavia have moderate coverage until 1920, including a nice group of used 1916 Serbian overprints. The Greece section brings plenty of interesting material up until 1980, with notable used classics, with a good range of Hermes heads and some "back of the book" including airmails. Approximately 2000 stamps here. While listed as a volume, there is no album with these pages (for the record). Estimate = $160.00 $10.00
373 Worldwide Collection - Volume 8 Spain and Colonies. If you enjoy deciphering this country’s early issues, including differentiating printings and forgeries this mounted collection will be for you. Or, on the other hand, if you are looking for a good "seed" collection of Spanish issues, including back of the book, from 1852 to 1970, this will be an excellent staring point. The Queen Isabella II and King Alfonso XII issues have been collected for obvious shade or printing differences, with many selected for having attractive cancels. We noted a mint, Never Hinged set of the 1928 semi-postal issue (Scott US$110.00) and a page of civil war-era local issues. The colonies are present, but a bit thin, with some Morocco, Sahara, Guinea, Rio Muni. Although mostly non-colonial era, there is some good coverage of Philippines starting with Spanish and American era issues and then stronger from the 1930’s-70’s. Expect some mixed condition for this era of material, but undoubtedly an interesting grouping. About 1400 stamps, all mounted within a Scott International binder (with a bit of hinge and edge wear). Estimate = $140.00 $42.00
374 Worldwide Collection - Volume 9 Europe. "Albania" to "Croatia" in Scott International album with pages up to 1982. While many countries are present, there is some extensive Austria starting right from the earliest issues, with a number of nice cancels and a couple of fantastic covers (which include B106-B109 and B138-B141 on non-FDCs, cataloguing $220.00), continuing on to heavy back of the book coverage. There is some decent coverage from Bulgaria and Croatia. A mix of mint and used. When there is duplication, it is usually because of both mint and used being represented, or there being a better cancel, perforation difference, etc. Much of the material is common, with lots of short sets, but there are better individual stamps of up to $25.00 catalogue found throughout. The binder has been put through its paces and is tape reinforced to keep the philatelic goodness inside. Estimate = $360.00 $10.00
375 Worldwide Collection - Volume 21 Scandinavia. Classic-heavy Nordic mounted collection of around 3000 mint and used stamps, with interesting additions such as cancels, varieties and even a few covers here and there. Includes Greenland (125 stamps), Finland (750 stamps) starting in 1875, with perforation and shades to keep you busy, plus some "back of the book" and Iceland (250 stamps) including various printings and overprints. There is a good offering of Norway (750 stamps) and Sweden (1130 stamps), with the Swedish material including a shade study of Oscar II issues (owner’s catalogue $600.00) and a dizzying group of town cancels. Overall, the appearance of the stamps is excellent, but expect some faults here and there. The collection thins out in the 1970’s and there isn’t much after 1984. Everywhere you look there is interesting material. (See Denmark for the Danish portion of this collection). Estimate = $400.00 $24.00
376 Worldwide Covers - Accumulation of Worldwide Aerogrammes / Air Letters. A total of 190 items, with a mix of both used / unused Aerogrammes, including 75 from Canada, but also noting Nepal, Denmark, Israel, Burma, Hong Kong, France, USA and Australia (to name a few). All neatly arranged within a small box. Easily one of the most neglected areas of Postal Stationery collecting. Estimate = $120.00 $80.00
377 Worldwide Covers - Small black box, stuffed with 721 covers, primarily Switzerland / Liechtenstein from the 1970's to early 2000's. A colourful mix of material, being mostly cachet First Day Covers or First Flight Covers, accumulated over a number of years and stowed safely away by and avid collector. This group would represent an enormous original purchase price, along with an even larger retail price (especially if someone wanted to take the time to sell these off individually). Estimated at less than 20c per cover. Estimate = $140.00 $0.00
378 Worldwide Ephemera - A medium size box stuffed with paper ephemera as accumulated over many years, some with a philatelic connection, some not. A wide range of material, but some notable items are... newspaper illustrations (many pre-1900), illustrated London News 1935 Silver Jubilee and 1937 Coronation special edition books, dozens of sheets / partial sheets of Christmas Seals (and others), cigarette tin, cigarette cards (several dozen), matchbooks, 3x different USA Geological survey maps of Saudia Arabia (late 1950's / early 1960's), British Admiral signature on piece, Legislative Assembly of Manitoba 1893 / 1895 opening invitations, 4x London Amateur Philharmonic invitations from the 1870's and a small box of early "social history" photographs.

379 Worldwide Literature - 2021 Scott Catalogues. Complete set of 2021 Scott International stamp catalogues, all in very clean "nearly new" ex-library condition. There have been no major price changes between the 2021 and 2024 catalogues. As such, this set is still very useful for valuing most material and the numbers don't really change. New, these 12 volumes would retail for well over $1,200.00. The Scott catalogue numbering system is the most universally recognized stamp numbering system used today. Estimate = $250.00 $110.00
380 Worldwide Literature - Complete Set of 2017 Scott Catalogues. Lightly used 2017 issue Scott catalogues VOLUME 1 to VOLUME 6 complete (the newer Scott sets have 12 volumes, split into A and B parts). The original discounted 2017 retail price of the six volumes was $750.00. These are still recent enough to be very useful and are printed on much nicer paper stock than the latest editions. Estimate = $200.00 $55.00
381 Worldwide Literature - Complete set of the 5th Edition "AAMC" American Air Mail Catalogue. Cover "Air Posts of the World", these volumes are a comprehensive listing of the American flights, as well as Canada and the World. This seldom seen 5 volume set was published in 1979 and is considered the bible for many airmail collectors. We could not find a complete set online for sale, with most single volumes being offered in the $30-$50 range. Some minor bumping and the occasional pencil note, but otherwise in well-above average condition. Estimate = $140.00 $11.00
382 Worldwide Mourning Covers - France. An enticing mourning cover collection of 70 covers. Starting with an 1847 stampless folded letter from Toulouse to Ireland with a subtle black edge. Includes a few 1870's covers, followed by some "Peace and Commerce" and "Sower" issues, including a wide range of cover sizes, and styles of the black bands that define these covers. Noted a couple of military free franks from WWI. Most are domestic usages, but there is a 1906 usage to Egypt and three 1920’s free mail covers from French Morocco back to France. Expect some faults, but overall condition is better than expected for these decidedly non-philatelic covers. Estimate = $200.00 $16.00
383 Worldwide Mourning Covers - Germany. Excellent mourning cover collection with 75 items ranging from 1889 to 2004. Most are envelopes with a wide range of sizes and black band width and configuration. A number include their original contents. Expect some faults, but this is an above-average collection of its type. Unchecked for rates or cancels. Noted a couple of DDR and Berlin items. The few philatelically-inspired items are postcards commemorating the death of Hindenburg or a crown Prince. Not an easily assembled collection. Estimate = $170.00 $10.00
384 Worldwide Mourning Covers - Great Britain Penny Red mourning covers. Intriguing selection of 36 black-bordered mourning covers, used between 1846-1877. Besides having a wide representation of sizes and styles of envelopes, there is good postal history value here, with lots of interesting cancels and routing marks. Stanley Gibbons prices for individual covers up to £40.00. The items are individually sleeved and a few have the original contents. We did note that many of the covers with #33 have the plate number in pencil. Overall condition is better than average but expect some minor faults. Estimate = $150.00 $26.00
385 Worldwide Mourning Covers - Great Britain. Fascinating bundle of Edward VII to early QEII mourning covers and post cards. Includes five covers sent postage free with the Royal cypher cancel. We noted there are six postcards in honour of the deaths of Queen Victoria, King Edward VII (4) and Churchill. The largest portion of the lot is about 50 covers, with strength in Edward VII and GeoV showing a wide range of envelopes, including one from a WWI field post office. One of the few items that doesn’t have mourning border is a 1917 registered postal stationery envelope which contains a book of memorial. Very mixed condition, but a very difficult to assemble grouping. Estimate = $200.00 $11.00
386 Worldwide Mourning Covers - Great Britain. Queen Victoria mourning covers (excluding penny reds, sold separately). Includes a stampless folded letter and then a number 1880’s-1900 covers. We noted a number addressed to North America, with a wide range of envelope types and styles of mourning bands and rates, a few with the original contents. Besides the topical appeal there are some beautiful pieces of postal history, including some nice duplex and squared circle cancels that would retail up to $50.00 each. Expect some faults, as these covers are universally non-philatelic in nature. Estimate = $200.00 $11.00
387 Worldwide Mourning Covers - Switzerland. An outstanding mourning cover collection, consisting of 97 covers and folded letters sent between 1841-2005. Besides being an incredible accumulation showing different styles and types of mourning envelopes and notices, there is some great postal history here. Noted a number of "Seated Helvetia", "William Tell", a couple with postage due stamps and great cancels including small town, "Ambulant" and militia usages. There are also some interesting "one off" usages such as semi-postals and better commemoratives. Includes some modern notices, indicating that this format of communication has been in use until recently. Expect some faults, but the overall condition is better than average. Estimate = $400.00 $13.00
388 Worldwide Mourning Covers - The balance of an extensive collection, with 1-10 examples from a number of countries and a total of 90 covers overall, including a few mounted on pages. Includes Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Czechoslovakia, Dominica, Ecuador, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Yugoslavia. Most of the covers have mourning bands around the envelope, but a small number have stamps with the bands as part of the stamp (only). Besides being a fascinating area of postal history, a few of the covers were censored along the way and a couple are postage due or express. Only a few are philatelic examples noted, as to be expected as this was real correspondence! There are several postcards with cemetery (including for pets) or mourning cards for Royalty/Pope. Finally, there is a group of about 40 very modern (post-1990) and mostly oversized mourning covers mostly from Western Europe, many with the contents. Note: the sections from this collection from Canada, Great Britain, France, Germany, Switzerland are listed elsewhere in this sale. Estimate= $160.00 $10.00

Philatelically inspired, there are covers for the death of the 2c and 13c letter rates (1932 and 1978) as well as Presidents Kennedy and Ford. A fascinating collecting area, and perfect for expansion. A total of 105 items, most individually sleeved. Estimate = $240.00 $12.00

The binders are then followed by 4 stockbooks, including two better Lighthouse brand 16-page and 32-page versions with block pages and crystal clear strips. As new, these supplies would easily retail over $250.00, but with a little clean up, these will still have lots of use to come. Estimate = $120.00 $55.00
398 Worldwide Supplies - Manila Stocksheets. A small box containing 100 lightly / moderately used stocksheets.

All this from a wide range of countries, including some cinderellas, "sand dune" or non-recognized stamp issuing entities. The lot is so diverse, so it is hard to pinpoint just a few highlights, but there is some New Zealand "sports" and "Lord of the Rings", lots of British Commonwealth and "Eastern Bloc" countries. Mostly in pristine NH condition, but a few are hinged and a few have minor faults. Many are in the original form, as purchased. This would have entailed a significant cost to assemble. Estimate = $200.00 $13.00
